See photos for condition please. Any questions please let me know. Thank you for your interest and time.Arne Hovmand-Olsen was born in Kirkeby Sogn, Denmark in 1919 to a farm family. Showing an early aptitude for drawing and design, in 1938 he was apprenticed to the cabinetmaker Peder Olsen Sibast at his furniture manufactory on Denmark's island of Funen. Interested in producing his own designs, in 1941 Hovman-Olsen enrolled at a technical school in Århus, specialising in furniture design, and established his own workshop soon after finishing his studies. Typical of Danish Modern furniture design, Hovmand-Olsen's creations were characterised by clean lines, organic curves, and the use of quality materials, like beautiful grained wood such as teak and rosewood. Encompassing seating, tables, secretaries and sideboards, his designs quickly met with success, first in Denmark, and eventually across the Atlantic in the United States of America. Hovmand-Olsen worked steadily designing furniture for companies such as Alf Juul Rasmussen, A. Klingenberg & Søn, Bramin, Elven Geertsen, J. Møller, Jutex, Mogens Kold Møbelfabrik, P. Mikklesen, Pedersen & Knap, and Skovmand & Andersen.
The studio closed in the 1970s due to Arne Hovmand-Olsen's ill health. He passed away in 1989. The same applies to certain items which contain pieces of glass that may not comply with current safety standards and therefore, as with antiques, should not be relied upon to meet current regulatory safely standards.
As with most glass products, sensible precautions should be adopted which would include, but is not limited to, never placing hot objects on glass surfaces and understanding that (due to their age) glazed units, glass shelves and surfaces are unlikely to be made from safety glass and will thus have limited strength and weight-loading capacities.
