Design Flemming Lassen, 1938
Solid oak or walnut, upholstery
Made by Audo

Flemming Lassen's iconic armchair was originally only made in a single edition. The forward-looking armchair was exhibited at The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Competition in 1938. Upon launch it received much praise for its sculptural form with distinctive wings, yet its complex two-part silhouette made it unsuitable for mass production until the advent of modern techniques. It was relaunched in connection with the chair's 80th anniversary and now it is also available in a walnut version. Its lumbar supportive, rounded, angled seat and extended backrest cocoon the sitter in comfort. Wooden legs and expert upholstery complete the design. A optional corresponding footrest adds to the sense of ease. Said to be Lassen's favorite chair, it stood at the designer's home until his death in 1984.

Credited for his role in bringing functionalism to Denmark, Flemming Lassen was an architect and designer noted for his exacting craftsmanship and naive expression. Lassen drew much of his inspiration from the architect Mies van der Rohe and the tenets of the Bauhaus artistic movement (a less is more approach focused on form, function and novel materials counterbalanced with human needs). His original and distinctive designs with timeless silhouettes still resonate today.
