Gesture Chair in Pure Wood, by Hans Olsen from Warm Nordic

$510per item


This beautiful, moulded gesture chair, designed in the 1950s, was the work of the acclaimed Danish architect, Hans Olsen. With its welcoming design, the gesture chair creates a warm atmosphere around a dining table or at a desk in the living room, where it does not hurt if a chair is something special. The armrests invite you to sit down and relax in the moulded design and are also constructed so you cannot get too close to the table. Gesture is a designer chair with a certain weight, offset by its light, playful charm. As a tribute to the 1950s’ adoration of color, the gesture chair is available in an abundance of stunning colors and comes with upholstery on seat and back, upholstery on the seat, or a unique type of wood, depending on the look you after. Additional information: Materials: Wood, foam, and upholstery Frame finish: Black lacquered solid beech Available colors: Black stained oak, teak, white oak Dimensions: W. 59.2 x D. 54.3 x H. 80.5 cm Seat height 46.
