Gunni Omann and Omann Jun Mobelfabrik

Omann Jun Mobelfabrik was founded by Andreas Omann in 1933. Initially, the family-owned company produced bedroom furniture, later adding dining room furniture and shelving systems. Many of the company's products were designed by family members.

In 1979 Bjarne Omann took over the company from his father and expanded the line to include office furniture. In 2005 Ulrich Omann took over leadership of the company from his father Bjarne Omann.

From what I've been able to determine, the most collectible of the company's vintage furniture was designed by family member Gunni Omann, although I've been unable to find any biographical information about him. Apparently, he most frequently designed casegoods for the company, as seen here.

  1. Model 18, 75, and credenza, I can't take my eyes off you!

  2. Axel Christiansen Odder credenza on the last photo, I mean.

  3. @I dream lo-tech: That Model 18 desk is spectacular. I'd completely rearrange my house to make room for one like it.

  4. They're all stunning but I love Model 19. I'm a sucker for those legs!
