Product Description

SAXE Folding Chair

When the visionary architect-cum-designer, Mogens Lassen, designed the Saxe folding chair for The Cabinetmaker’s Guild Competition in 1955, it was considered a bit too modern and audacious. Mogens Lassen was regarded an enfant terrible and never left anything to chance, but paid attention to every single detail, which is evident in this characterful and timeless chair. Today, more than 60 years later, Saxe’s minimalistic and distinctive lines and the perfect combination of leather, oak wood and brass detailing are regarded just as modern – a true prime example of function uniting with aesthetics and quality.

When the visionary architect-cum-designer, Mogens Lassen, designed the Saxe folding chair for The Cabinetmaker’s Guild Competition in 1955, it was considered a bit too modern and audacious. Mogens Lassen was regarded an enfant terrible and never left anything to chance, but paid attention to every single detail, which is evident in this characterful and timeless chair. Today, more than 60 years later, Saxe’s minimalistic and distinctive lines and the perfect combination of leather, oak wood and brass detailing are regarded just as modern – a true prime example of function uniting with aesthetics and quality.

As in Mogens Lassen’s architecture, nothing in the chair’s de- sign is left to chance and everything is worked out down to the smallest detail. The strong, stretched leather clings to the wood and creates an almost harmonious, organic form. The curved rivets in brass along the back break with the otherwise stringent expression and exemplify the fact that Mogens Lassen was not afraid of going against the grain and breaking with conventions.

The collapsible chair invites an extra guest to join the gathering and with its minimalistic, simple expression is perfect in both large and small quality-conscious homes – and is at least as current and modern here 60 years on.

Handcrafted

The strong, stretched leather clings to the wood and creates an almost harmonious, organic form. The curved rivets in brass along the back break with the otherwise stringent appearance, exemplifying the fact that
Mogens Lassen was not afraid of going against the grain and defying conventions.

Respect

Not only is the manufacturing process infused with the same love as when the products were originally created, It is the respect for each product’s individual history, the environment, and the joy of being part of the process that creates its high-quality craftsmanship that by Lassen is known for. Local manufacturing isn’t just a stamp on a product. It is by Lassen's firm belief.

MOGENS LASSEN

Architect Mogens Lassen (1901-1987) is among the greatest and most influential of Danish architects, a pioneer of Danish Functionalism, and is internationally renowned for his characteristic architecture. Mogens Lassen was inspired by the German design school Bauhaus, and its geometric shapes recur often in his iconic designs.
