This pair of rare lounge chairs 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 chairs have been upholstered in a charcoal gray, curly sheepskin. This gives the minimalist design a wonderful soft texture and a sense of warmth.
