Danish Furniture Company, founded in 1933
Andreas Omann, the son of Niels Omann who had founded Ølhom Møbelfabrik in 1892, founded Omann Jun Møbelfabrik. He originally focused on the production of beds and dining tables. By the 1950s, the company had expanded and started developing a range of sideboards, desks, coffee tables, bookshelves and office suites. Many of these pieces became iconic, crafted to a high standard in carefully selected teak and rosewood timbers, displaying elegant and refined forms, sharp detailing and delicate lightness. The ‘Model 18’ sideboard, designed in 1958, is, for instance, one of the company’s crown jewels and among the most coveted mid-century Scandinavian furnishings at an international level. Generation after generation, the family-owned company keeps innovating as well as re-issuing some of its design classics, always enshrining pure aesthetic lines, timber fineness, craftsmanship finish and functionality.
