by Lassen launches the Tired Man Footstool and a smaller sized Frame Sideboard

Flemming Lassen designed the iconic Tired Man armchair in 1935 for the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild competition. Its striking organic curves and voluminous armrests caused a sensation and today overstuffed furniture has become synonymous as the ‘Flemming Lassen style’.

By Lassen relaunched the Tired Man in 2015 to great acclaim with the chair going onto win the award for ‘comeback of the year’ at the Danish Design Awards.  As a direct extension of the chair, by Lassen now launches the Tired Man Footstool, which references the same lines and curves as the seat of the Tired Man armchair. The new Footstool also reuses the same wheels and legs as the main armchair. 


Flemming Lassen’s compact and elegant two-person sofa Mingle was designed in 1935 and shown at the Cabinet Maker’s Autumn Exhibition in Copenhagen the same year. Inspired by his many trips around Europe, Flemming added a touch of French elegance and Italian style to his own Scandinavian minimalism when designing the Mingle sofa.

Now available in exciting new dark blue and Bordeaux colours Mingle is offered the chance to speak a new design language and become freshly appreciated in a whole new way. The sophisticated shades of Bordeaux and dark blue are perfectly matched to the shape of the sofa. Both deep rich colours allow the Mingle sofa to stand out from the crowd with an exclusive, almost regal look that references classic drawing rooms, parlours and sitting rooms.


Frame is a flexible storage solution that takes its starting point from an original Mogens Lassen sketch from 1943, which itself was inspired by the architect’s interest in Cubism. The characteristic cubed boxes use the same 6 mm metal frame profile found in many of Mogens Lassen’s designs. Frame unites functionality, quality and aesthetics, letting you decide the ultimate look.

The Frame Sideboard combines a Frame box with its very own minimalistic cubic metal stand resulting in a unique piece of stylish freestanding furniture. Now available in a smaller 35 cm size, the new Frame Sideboard is even more ideal for use as a bedside table or extra sofa side table. The Frame Sideboard 35 can also be placed next to other Frame Sideboards to create elegant extra shelving or cupboard space that is both chic and minimalistic.

NZELA is a sturdy modular table set made of grade A birch plywood. Plywood is used instead of plain solid wood because of its better resistance to the effects caused by humidity. The no-tool setup takes a mere 3 minutes per table and you may seamlessly conjoin – in whichever direction – as many tables. Storage is also easy – simply disassemble and place the table parts in a neat pile.

NZELA may not only be used for dining but also as a conference table, a statement piece for the lobby or for an unofficial ping-pong match, to mention. There is ample legroom and a toddler’s high chair fits perfectly too.

You may choose from 3 tabletop colors – red/white, blue/white or yellow/white. Additionally, the visual appearance (the glossiness or hues of the colors) may be personalized; and the table parts can be re-arranged to suit any space or taste. The De Stijl movement inspired this objet d’art. The name Nzela is Luganda for Angella in homage to my grandmother.

The stool Nitton° is a product from a sustainability project. Questions like “How can a stool be designed to be more environmentally friendly, economically profitable and with social features?

The stool is made from thin layers of wood that are pressed together with glue and heat. The glue is a new type that is not dangerous for our environment and is extra hard to allow the thin construction. Thin construction minimizes material and double curved surfaces allow maximum weight. To give it social values the stool is designed to comfort a small group of up to nineteen people. If you put nineteen stools together you get a circle that is the perfect size for a small group when communicating, everyone can have eye contact and easily hear each other, perfect for schools, libraries and museums.

The name Nitton° is the Swedish word for nineteen, the degree sign connects to the stools curve that is also nineteen.

The stool will be shown at the fair “Hem 2009” in Stockholm, Sweden this week 1-4 October
