About the designer –
Mid-century furniture by Fred Lowen (Australia)
Fred Lowen (born Fritz Karl Heinz Lowenstein) was an Australian mid-century furniture designer known for his elegant and functional designs that became popular throughout Australia and beyond. He was born in Upper Silesia in 1919, in what was then a part of Germany. Escaping from the Nazis in 1938 he travelled first to England, and then to Australia, arriving in 1940.
In 1945 Lowen founded the furniture company Fler with his business partner, Ernest Rodeck whom he had met at the Internment Camp on his arrival in Australia. Lowen took a basic course in Furniture Design and Construction at the Melbourne Technical College from 1949 to 1950 and the company gained a reputation for producing high-quality furniture with modern designs, Lowen’s pieces were particularly popular due to their sleek lines and use of natural materials such as timber and leather.
