About this item

One set of eigth (1) teak wooden dining chairs with new upholstered leatherette deisgned by Henry W.Klein for Bramin. Designer Henry Walter (H.W.) Klein was born in Norway in 1919. After serving in the Norwegian Royal Marines, Klein turned to cabinetmaking. In 1949, he moved to Denmark to study interior design at the Tekniske Skile in Frederikberg. There he trained under the prominent Danish designer and architect Finn Juhl. After finishing school in 1952, Klein returned to Norway to establish his own furniture and interiors business. His chairs, tables, and sideboards are characteristic of the postwar Danish modern style, typically involving fine woods like teak and well proportioned, well crafted forms.
Later on, he became interested in plastic furniture—ultimately designing a new plastic manufacturing method—and worked closely with Danish manufacturer Bramin. In 1960, Klein and his family moved to Denmark so he could work full time at Bramin. He remained at the company until it closed in 1980; he and his family moved to San Francisco in the 1980s. This unique set of eight (!) teak framed chairs with skai upholstery (new) is in very good condition and shows the influence of the postwar Danish furniture design.
