Arne Hovmand-Olsen was born in 1919 in Denmark into a farming family. He quickly developed an attraction for drawing and creation. He began his career in 1938 with an apprenticeship in cabinet making at P. Olsen Sibast.
Very quickly, he wanted to realize and produce his own creations. He then decided to train at a technical school specializing in furniture design. Once his training was completed, he opened his own studio. Success knocks quickly at his door: he sells in Denmark but especially in the United States! His workshop closed in the 1970s.
