Original Danish Brown Leather HW Klein Egg Chair for Bramin
This iconic egg chair, designed by HW Klein for Bramin is in superb, original condition. Its wonderfully retro egg shape, combined with its voluminous, floppy padded leather cushion, make this chair a very comfortable statement piece with timeless appeal. Bramin started out under the name N.A. Jorgensen in the 1950s and produced quality, modern furniture up to the early 1980s. As a much respected Danish manufacturer, they collaborated with a number of high profile Danish designers, such as Hans Olsen and Kurt Ostervig, but it was HW Klein who produced some of their most well-known and enduring pieces, including this leather egg chair. Great of course in a family living space for TV watching or reading. Its classic design means it would work well in other rooms in the home too, either on its own or in the mix with other seating. And this one is in exceptional order.
This is an original, vintage piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in overall excellent, used condition. The leather has been thoroughly cleaned. The leather upholstery on the single, large, over-sized cushion is on outstanding order. Although wrinkled and with some very minor scuffs, as is the nature of vintage leather, it’s thick, soft and supple with working zips and plump inners. Likewise, the fixed leather upholstery is in excellent order too. There are some very minor scuffs, but again, this is barely noticeable and doesn’t detract from the chair’s considerable appeal one bit. Sadly the original Bramin sticker, usually found under the seat cushion at the front, is no longer affixed as is often the way but this is a very well-documented, attributed design. The chair swivels with ease and the legs and mechanism are in exceptional order. Please browse our photos for an accurate sense of the overall superb condition.
