We first set eyes on a Bikini Chair at The Vintage Furniture Flea back in March. Designed by Hans Olsen for Frem Røjle and dating from c. 1961, the progressive design of the Bikini Chair placed Olsen light years ahead of his contemporaries. The compound forming of the wood proved an extremely difficult process which created a limited production and a high unit cost - making this chair quite a rarity. In the flesh this chair's big, brutish and attention-seeking, but its definitely got something about it!
