Lounge Chair by H.W. Klein (attr) for Bramin, Denmark 1960s


Brown Chaise longue with stained beech frame, commonly attributed to H.W. Klein for Bramin.

This wonderfully crafted lounge chair has a tilt function, which makes it extremely comfortable. The seat is extended in soft lines as a chaise longue to support your legs. The extension is raised slightly higher than the seat, enabling you to lay back into the chair. The hinge of the chair is in between the backrest and the wooden V-shaped frame. Tilting the seat back allows you to settle back and unwind. The armrests are upholstered in the same cognac leather and are padded. The sculpted ‘ears’ are common to a traditional wingback chair, enclosing the head in order to provide comfortable protection from drafts, and to trap the heat from a fireplace in the area where the person would be sitting.

About the designer:
Although Norwegian by birth, Henry Walter (H.W.) Klein is closely associated with the Danish modern style. Klein was born in Norway in 1919 but he moved to Denmark in 1949, to study interior design at the Tekniske Skole in Frederikberg. There, he was taught by the prominent Danish designer and architect Finn Juhl. In 1952, Klein returned to Norway to start his own furniture and interiors company. His chairs, tables, and sideboards are characteristic of the postwar Danish modern aesthetic, typically involving fine woods like teak and well proportioned, well crafted forms.
