Arne Hovmand Olsen 1919-1989

Hovmand-Olsen showed an aptitude for drawing and design from a young age, and, in 1938, began an apprenticeship with cabinetmaker Peder Olsen Sibast at his furniture factory on the Danish island of Funen. Interested in producing his own designs, Hovmand-Olsen enrolled in a technical school specializing in furniture design in Århus in 1941. After graduating, he established his own furniture studio, creating designs in the Scandinavian modern style. His furniture was initially sold only in Denmark but later found great success when it began to be exported to America and the UK.

Hovmand-Olsen’s designs are characteristically simple in form with clean lines and organic curves.

Hovmand-Olsen designed furniture for companies such as Bramin, J.L. Møller, and Mogens Kold Møbelfabrik.
