1955-1960 Denmark

Hans Olson studied at the Royal Danish Art Academy from 1941 to 1943. In 1953 he opened his own studio and took part in the annual Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition in Copenhagen which quickly made him famous.
He experimented with both design and material.
One of his most successful designs was this dining table set he designed for Frem Rojle around 1955-1960.
Shape and function were combined in a space-saving design. 4 people can easily sit around this table, but it does not take up a lot of space, so it's perfect for small rooms.
The chairs have 3 legs and the armrest of every chair fits the edge of the table exactly. The set was made of stunning tak from Myanmar.
The chairs are upholstered with black faux leather.

Table diameter: 105 cm, height: 74 cm
This collector's item is hard to find, especially because this dining set is completely in original condition. There have been no restorations.
The Frem Rojle mark can be found at the bottom the table the bottom of every chair.
After almost 60 years (the dining table set was always owned by myself and my family) and was bought around 1960 in Amsterdam.
There are some signs of wear (see below), but it is generally in very good condition and the upholstery of the chairs is original and still perfect.
There is a small black stain on the table top and a slight impression of a cup/glass (see photo), not too noticeable, depending on the light.
The attachment of 1 chair is damaged (photo) and where the armrests of the chairs slide underneath the table, there is some wear because the wood scrapes against the edge of the table.
All photos of the damage were taken with a macro lens.
