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 enduring 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.
This is an original piece that is ‘sold as seen’. It is in overall good – very good, used condition. The leather has been cleaned and nourished with a natural leather balm. The leather upholstery on the large, over-sized cushion is in very good order. Although wrinkled and with some minor surface scuffs, as is the nature of vintage leather, it’s thick, soft and supple with a working zip and plump inners. The fixed leather upholstery is in overall good order. Although no tears, there are some dents to the leather on the curved shell. This is where something has pressed into the chair either in its former home (the back of swivel chairs often carry marks as they scrape against walls / furniture when spun) or on its journey from Denmark to the UK. In our experience, once in a warm home, these dents often flatten out and as they are in the back of the chair, it’s likely they won’t be of great concern as they won’t be seen often. Please refer to our photos. The original Bramin sticker is still affixed to the chair underneath the cushion, something that is rare in this model of chair. They’re usually long gone!
