Pair Rud Thygesen & Johnny Sorensen chairs for Magnus Olesen

Rud Thygesen (1932) and Johnny Sørensen (1944) both graduated from the Danish School of Arts, Crafts and Design in 1966 and the same year they opened their own design studio. While still at school they established a co-operation with Magnus Olesen which in 1971 was expressed in the first models of a range of laminated furniture of which the mutual connection – both technologically and aesthetically – is shown in a stringent and functional design. Since then Thygesen and Sørensen have created a large number of furniture series – mainly in laminated wood. They have contributed considerably to the development of furniture in laminated and molded wood and have designed some of the most successful Danish furniture pieces.

This pair of steamed bent plywood chairs were designed by Rud Thygesen and Johnny Sørensen, and made in the early 1970s by renowned furniture Danish maker Magnus Olesen. Sorry these are now sold.
