Bikini weather

Thursday, 14 July 2011

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!

  1. You always find such interesting chairs. I like this one, and I'm sure it's waaaaay out of my budget.

  2. I think the fluid lines of this chair keep it from feeling massive and intimidating. Gotta love all those curves.
