About

1960s set of six teak dining chairs with floating seat designed by Erik Buch for Oddense Maskinsnedkeri in 1949. The chairs have a simple yet solid construction with elegant lines and provide a very comfortable seating experience on the elegant floating seat design and are becoming increasingly collectable. The chairs have been fully restored and refinished by our cabinetmaker to insure that they are in excellent condition with only minimal signs of age and use. The chairs have furthermore been reupholstered with black basic leather Sorensen leather, a leather used for a vast range of iconic designs you see as collectibles in museums, galleries, executive settings and private residences worldwide, to enhance the sense of the good quality attached to this chair even more. Danish Industrial designer Erik Buch (pronounced Book) was born in 1923 in Copenhagen. Designing in the Scandinavian Modern style, Buch’s organic and functional aesthetic resulted in furniture that spanned chairs, stools, and cabinets. Like many of his Danish contemporaries, Buch combined fabric and leather with nicely grained woods, such as polished teak, oak, and rosewood.? Buch first found success with his Model 49 chair (1949). The chair, which is produced in both carver and dining chair styles, features a curved “floating” seat and a Classic Scandinavian Modern aesthetic. Arguably his most famous design, the Model 61 barstool (1961) has a typically Scandinavian base with organically sculpted lines. Many of Buch’s designs are named after the year in which they were conceived, especially those produced by the cabinetmaker and furniture manufacture Oddense Maskinsnedkeri. Oddense was renamed O.D. Møbler in the late 1960s or early 1970s, which is reflected on the labels of later Model 61 productions.? Other designs by Buch include the Captain’s Chair (1955) for Ørum Møbler, Model 310 dining chair for Chr. Christiansen (1960s), and a t-shaped rosewood bar stool for Dyrlund (1960s).? It is believed that Buch passed away in 1973, though some sources state, 1982. Little is known of his personal life, but his professional legacy remains as his designs continue to be appreciated on the vintage market for their high-quality materials, solid craftsmanship, and Scandinavian aesthetic.
