    Rare and early easy chair with Niger leather details


    Rare and early easy chair by Arne Hovmand-Olsen

    This rare teak easy chair has a curvy seat and the back is upholstered with light fabric. 

    Its armrests and buttons on the back are fitted with Niger leather. The chair was designed early in 1947 by Arne Hovmand-Olsen (1919-1989) and executed by J. L. Møllers Møbelfabrik in Aarhus, Denmark. It was one of the very first easy chairs Mr. Hovmand-Olsen and Niels Otto Møller, the founder of J. L. Møllers Møbelfabrik created together. And even one of the very first chairs that was executed at J. L. Møllers Møbelfabrik. The two men were both still in their 20s and just starting out on what would become very successful careers for both of them. Towards the end of the 1930s Arne Hovmand-Olsen worked at Peder Olsen Sibast carpentry on the island of Funen (a carpentry that later would become the more well-known furniture manufacturer Sibast Furniture which produced designs for Arne Vodder). But Hovmand-Olsen had the desire to create furniture designs himself, so he enrolled at Technical Collage in Århus in 1941.  A few years later towards the end of WW2, having finished his studies the young Hovmand-Olsen met Niels Otto Møller at the Trade Fair in Fredericia. N. O. Møller had recently set up production facilities and shop in Århus (where Hovmand had studied and resided) and was looking to expand his furniture production.  This chair became one of their first collaborations, if not the first.
