Who designed this chair?
I've seen people saying it's designed by either Hans Olsen, Finn Juhl or Grete Jalk. Does anyone know?

I've seen it attributed to Hans Olsen & Elias Barup (together, not either or.). But I'm not sure in any way...

The top chair is called Model 55 as it was designed by Hans Olsen in 1955 for N. A. Jørgensens Furniture Company.

The two colourful chairs seem to be heavely inspired by Hans Olsen's original design but I don't think that they have anything to do with him.

Second chair
Is often referred to as Kodawood chair. I guess Kodawood was a manufacturer of them?

Kodawood seems to be a manufacture in Miami. Not sure about the designer though.

Doesn't the 'K' logo look an awful lot like Herbert Matter's logo for Knoll? Did Kodawood and Knoll have anything together?

I found a blog attributing the Kodawood chair to Seymour James Wiener:
