    Danish industrial designer Erik Buch (pronounced Buck) was born in 1923 in Copenhagen. Designing in the Scandinavian modern style, Buch’s organic and functional aesthetic resulted in furniture that spanned chairs, stools, and cabinets. Like many of his Danish contemporaries, Buch combined fabric and leather with nicely grained woods, such as polished Teak, Oak, and Rosewood.
    Buch first found success with his Model 49 chair (1949). The chair, which is produced in both carver and dining chair styles, features a curved “floating” seat and a classic Scandinavian modern aesthetic. Arguably his most famous design, the Model 61 barstool (1961) has a typically Scandinavian base with organically sculpted lines. Many of Buch’s designs are named after the year in which they were conceived, especially those produced by the cabinetmaker and furniture manufacture Oddense Maskinsnedkeri. Oddense was renamed O.D. Møbler in the late 1960s or early ‘70s, which is reflected on the labels of later Model 61 productions.
    Other designs by Buch include the Captain’s Chair (1955) for Ørum Møbler, Model 310 dining chair for Chr. Christiansen (1960s), and a t-shaped rosewood bar stool for Dyrlund (1960s). It is believed that Buch passed away in 1973, though some sources state 1982. Little is known of his personal life, but his professional legacy remains as his designs continue to be appreciated on the vintage market for their high-quality materials, solid craftsmanship, and Scandinavian aesthetic.
