This rare pair of lounge chairs was designed by Arne Dahlén in the early 1960s. The model was called ‘Eva’ and was manufactured by his company, Dahléns Company in the Swedish town Dalum. The company was solely devoted to the production of chairs.
The soft geometric angles give this chair a modern and sculptural appearance. The hexagonal shape of the seat shell makes this an interesting design from all angles.. The four tapered legs are in veneered teakwood, with brass feet. The legs marked at the top with the original manufacturer’s label. The chairs have been reconditioned and newly upholstered in a moss green bouclé Manuel Canovas fabric .
