Can you identify the attached chair, sorry, the attached photo of the chair?
Ahh, what a lovely chair, Vincent!
Immediately the things that stand out to identify this chair are the sculpted armrests and the thoughtfully attractive wood stretcher on its backside. These details are indicative of designer Folke Ohlsson of Dux.
“Folke Ohlsson moved to the US from Sweden in 1953, and established DUX, Inc. in San Francisco the same year. In 1959 he moved the company to Burlingame, California. His design is generally referred to as “Scandinavian Modern” but frequently gets categorized as “Danish Modern” or “Danish Teak”.
A popular designer of the late 1950s early 60s, and highly collectable, Folke Ohlsson has been credited for creating the concept of knock down furniture, or KD. This is furniture which can be flattened and assembled at its final destination which makes it less expensive to ship.
Folke Ohlsson passed away Oct. 23, 2002.” (via)
If you’re planning on selling the chair, I highly suggest you research further before you slap a big price tag with DUX on it – but if you’re going to keep the chair and love it, feel free to impress your friends with your “I believe it’s a piece by designer Folke Ohlsson” chair.
