Mid-Century Safari Chair by Hans Olsen for Viskadalens Möbler


Authenticate by VHB

A stunning Mid-Century Safari Chair by Hans Olsen for Viskadalens Möbler. A perfect example of the great work of this pioneering Mid-Century designer. Featuring an exposed, sculpted solid European white oak frame with a fitted, thick, whole grain black leather upholstery and black leather armrests. The frame minimizes the structure to only the necessary elements. Emphasizing both the spectacular joinery and the beauty of the supple leather. Incredibly comfortable with a mid rise back and the original detached black leather seat cushion. The backrest and seat are composed of a single piece of thick black leather. Adding to the sophistication of this stunning Scandinavian Modern armchair. The black leather armrests provide ample support and are fixed to the frame with brass screws. The sturdy new black leather upholstery curves and envelopes the body. Making this chair not only wonderful to look at but equally comfortable to sit in.
