Very rare JJP Oud chair from the director’s room of the Shell Oil company building, completed just after WWII in The Hague /1950.

Stockmann Orno AB. 1960s.

The design mostly attributed nowadays to Lisa Johansson-Pape although it was most probably by Olof Ottelin.

…in 1965-66, around 20 years after Pape left the Stockmann furniture department and went to Orno to start a career in lighting design. A move that was intended to be temporary, but eventually took over her passion and the rest of her long bright career” (Haddadindesign/ Instagram page 24/12/17)

Solid pine wood – Table and four chairs.

Rare large sized dining table (99 x 87 x 72.5cm) and four stools (35 x 35 x 43.5). This early production set is in superb condition having just the right colour and patina from regular use as would be desired. A rare set.
