    Rare set of four fumed oak chairs with black leather by  Chris Sørensen

    This rare set of four fumed oak chairs with patinated black leather is by architect Chris Sørensen. The chairs were designed in 1955 and executed by Nils Otto Møllers company 'J. L. Møllers møbelfabrik' in Aarhus, Denmark. The model number is 74. Fumed oak or smoked oak as it is also known has in fact nothing to do with smoke or heat treatment. The original light oak wood was made darker by exposing it to ammonia fumes. The ammonia reacts with the natural tannins in the wood, which gives it a darker colour and brings out the grain pattern. The longer the wood is exposed to ammonia the darker it gets. Apparently this ageing technique was invented by accident in England hundreds of years ago, when it was noticed that oak planks stored in the horse stable would darken because of exposure to the ammonia fumes from the horse urine.
