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.
