Danish furniture manufacturing company Omann Jun Møbelfabrik A/S was founded by Andreas Omann in 1933. The family-run business initially focused on the production of bedroom furniture but later, in 1950s, ’60s, and ’70s, expanded into dining room furniture , desks , sideboards , and shelving systems made in high-quality woods, such as teak, oak, and rosewood, which were exported worldwide. Members of the Omann family developed the designs in house, with Gunni Omann achieving the most success. His work has become highly collectible on the vintage Scandinavian market today. Few biographical details of this prolific Danish designer's life have survived. Among collectors, Gunni's beautifully constructed wood sideboards remain Omann Jun's most sought after productions. These pieces feature many hallmarks of Scandinavian modernist design, like beautiful grained surfaces, tapered legs, sliding doors, and beveled edges. The Model 18 (1961) and Model 21 (1965) are exemplars of this style.
Omann Jun was taken over in 1979 by Bjarne Omann, after he inherited the company from his father. During his time as the head of the company, Omann Jun produced exclusive furnishings for professional offices. In 2005, Ulrich Omann took leadership from his father, and today the company concentrates on the production of office furniture, including many midcentury classics. The Omann family business remains operational to this day, known now simply as Omann.
