Henry Walter a.k.a. H.W. Klein was a Norwegian born designer and while information on him is a bit limited, he served in the Norwegian Royal Marines and turned his sites to cabinetmaking in 1949. He moved to Denmark and studied interior design under direction of prominent Danish architect and designer Finn Juhl. Once he finished school he returned to Norway and began his own interior and furniture business. His Danish modern style characteristic is in his tables, sideboards, and chairs. He moved to Denmark in 1960 to work for Bramin Mobler where he stayed until the company closed in 1980.
Originally known as N.A. Jorgensen, Danish furniture manufacturer Bramin Mobler was founded in Bramming, a region on the west coast of the Jutland peninsula. Throughout the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s they produced seating, tables, and case goods in a style representative of the Danish mid-century modern era. According to catalogs and other advertisements, N.A. Jorgensen launched Bramin in 1957 into the early 60’s but it wasn’t until the mid-60’s that Bramin’s eye-catching logo was created with a rounded lower case a which was intended to stand out from the other letters. In it’s prime, Bramin worked with many well-known designers, such as Johannes Andersen, Hans Olsen, Kurt Ostervig, & Frank Reenskaug. But one of the most successful relationships for Bramin was that of H.W. Klein. Bramming based businesses were hit hard in the early 80’s forcing most of them, including Bramin Mobler to close.
