Visit Siteest favourites from By Lassen

By Lassen The Tired Man was originally designed by Flemming Lassen for The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers Guild Competition in 1935. It is characterised by organic, bearlike shapes and then as now it created a sensation with its curved form and voluminous armrests. Sitting in the chair should, in Flemming Lassen’s own ords, be ”as warm and safe as a polar bear cub in the arms of its mother in the middle of the ice cap”. The family man Flemming Lassen valued intimate relationships – with its warm exterior, The Tired Man invokes domestic cosiness and socialising by candlelight.
