A vintage lounge chair by Norwegian designer Martin Olsen. Designed in 1946 and manufactured by Vik and Blindheim, Norway; an example of this model is in the permanent collection of the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo. It has been recently reupholstered in white sheepskin with button tufting on the seat and back. Due to the uneven nature of sheepskin a seat seam stretches into the backrest on the lower left (detail image 10). This is typical of the material and not considered a flaw.
