A beautiful set of 6 dining chairs in solid teak by Erik Buch, with oatmeal fabric to the seat pads and backs. It’s worth taking the time to have a good look around these chairs to appreciate all the subtle little design features that make them just so special.
Danish industrial designer Erik Buch 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. 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 ‘70s, which is reflected on the labels of later Model 61 productions. 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.
These super stylish chairs are structurally sound and truly beautiful. Only, as you’d expect, minimal faint signs of use to one or two of the seat pads (See photo for the ‘worst’ of these). You may choose to try a shampoo or simply use as they are.
