An beautifully minimalist piece from one of the masters of Scandinavian chair design. The 'Balloon Chair' was designed by Hans Olsen for Lea Møbelfabrik in 1955 as a lightweight, but strong & functional chair with a modular frame to act as a basket for the seat. The hoop holds the suede seat in place around the rim, while on the bottom it is tensioned by means of rubber binds, which give the chair seat its floating look. This chair has recently been refurbished with the frame being lacquered, and teak armlets re-finished.
