This rare lounge chair was designed by Kurt Østervig and produced by the Danish manufacturer Rolschau Møbler in 1958. The design is characterized by the round seat shell, mounted on a striking sled like base in stained oak. The chair has been fully reconditioned and newly upholstered in a sand colored, naturally curly Australian sheepskin. This gives the Minimalist design a wonderful texture and a sense of warmth.
