Name the chairs' designer!
Does anyone know who designed these chairs? Or who the producer might be? I've searched high and low and cannot come up with the answer! Any clues would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Hi ...
... Bramin is correct, but H.W. Klein is worth discussing.

Wow !
I got all excited when I saw two answers come in, so thank you so much! This is the first time I've put a question on the forum. So Bramin Mobler is a sure deal, you both agree? It's the top / back of those chairs that throws me off, I can't find another one like it. I've just looked at a H.W. Klein chair on Deconet, the top of the chair is somewhat similar, but still, not quite the same. I'm looking...

Hi ...
... definitely Bramin, but with the utmost probability not H.W. Klein.

Hi there,

Here's another one: I know it's a chair by De Ster, but who's the designer?? Any help is much appreciated!

Cheers, Rabr

Ah, the De Ster chair...
...is an interesting one. My apologies for not being able to give you a reliable answer. I bet the other respondents who offered information to my questions are by far more knowledgeable than am I to answer your question. Still, I'll keep it in mind as I currently find myself researching seemingly endless numbers of questions concerning the different designers. I just might come across your chair.

As for the chairs in my photos, and the answers that the producer is Bramin, but the conflicting views: they are or they are not a W.H. Klein model, I landed on a website where they show eight chairs that they claim are by W.H. Klein and they show the producer's name, Bramin, below the chairs. I was able to find this thanks to the two respondents who answered my questions! The chairs look pretty close to exactly the ones I've been questioning. (but they're in teak, mine are in palissandre)I've added two photos of those chairs. They figure on the havas-antiquites website where there are quite a few more photos including one showing the producer.I hope I'm not breaking the rules here because on that website, there are prices indicated, I merely wish to share my surprise of finding chairs that seem to be the same ones in my photos, especially since a certain disagreement as to the designer has already been expressed.

Also, does anyone know whether Bramin still exists? And under the same name? I have not yet been able to find a website for them, even looking on google.dk. And two more questions: if the producer's name does not show up below the chairs, does that mean that they are not 'real' Klein, Juhl, Wegner et cetera chairs? Or were all designers chairs actually produced by various producers? Hope this wasn't too long for the forum. Again, this is my first experience here!

Hi.
Concerning De Ster, maybe the company pulled in young or just graduated students who designed this furniture for them.
Often this 'danish' inspired furniture was designed anonymously, often too by well known designers or architects, but outside their more personal work.
This happened at Fristho, but also at Topform for instance.
Designers did it for the money or the step up, I think.
