Otto Larsen is Danish and came to NZ on November the 6th, 1958 to give us real ‘Danish’ designed furniture.
He was quite prolific, producing this exact design in Denmark & the UK as well. His designs feature trademark joinery and he can be recognised by his branded ‘Otto Larsen Ltd’ mark.
He was a true Modernism local hero who still appreciates design.
Contrary to popular belief, OTTO LARSEN was not a fictitious name (like JON JANSEN) created by a local firm to cash in on the 60’s craze for Scandinavian modern furniture. He was a Danish immigrant to NZ in the 50’s who designed & crafted a wonderful range of mahogany furniture that was distinctively Danish modern in style. He was quite prolific, producing this exact design in Denmark & the UK as well. His designs feature skillful joinery, & can be recognised by his branded mark.
