Chair identification help. Perhaps Niels Koefoed?

I've been trying to identify these two chairs that we purchased awhile ago, but have so far been unable to find anything concrete. The nearest designs I seem to find are some Niels Koefoed chairs. The only mark on the chairs is a GS stamp. The fabric is not original. I'm pretty sure the wood is teak. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks modernefamilie and leif. I don't think it's Glyngøre. Sorry, I should have posted a photo of the stamp. It's a more crude GS than that. Driving me crazy!

So that piece of wood looks like mahogany or one of its substitutes. How about a similar close up of the backrest so we can we the primary wood.

If it is also mahogany like, the chair is not Danish.

Here are a couple shots of the backrest. I'm afraid I'm not good on wood identification. Interesting that you think it might not be Danish, as this would open up my search. I'd simply assumed as much because of the lines of the chair. So many thanks for the help.

Thanks again Leif. Here are some more photos. One of the back/middle of the backrest and a top view, plus the middle of the seat stay.
