Saxe Lounge Chair


Mogens Lassen was perceived as ‘the naughty boy in class’, but he aimed for perfection in each design project. His eye for detail, leaving nothing unnoticed, and his will to try out new methods are clearly seen in this characteristic and timeless chair. It is contemporary proof of his habit of pushing the boundaries of materials and what was comme il faut. The seat, manufactured in core leather, truly reaches the limits of how big pieces of leather can be and are enhanced by the molded, yet massive wooden legs. In the middle of the 20th century, this technique was still in its early years. The beautiful fittings work almost as a piece of jewelry on the chair and clearly illustrate how only the finest materials were selected. Mogens Lassen’s Saxe chair is a classic example of aesthetics and functionality enhancing one another.
