Furniture Friday: Compact Dinette Set by Hans Olsen


To kick off the inaugural Furniture Friday we give you this amazing Hans Olsen design from 1953: an dining table with chairs that tuck completely under the table itself. Mid-Century Modernist tells us they also have seen a version with four-legged chairs and an expanding tabletop. They also clue us into a lame version by Ikea. Whatever the variation, this is not only an architect's dream (all that messy furniture fits under the round circle in plan) but it's incredibly well-crafted. And beautiful.
