A shoemaker’s chair

One Danish design firm to keep an eye on is By Lassen. The Company owns the rights to the designs of Danish architects Mogens Lassen (1901-1987) and Flemming Lassen (1902-1984). Besides the iconic Kubus candleholder I’m quite the fan of the ML42 stool designed in by Mogens Lassen in 1942 as a piece for a furniture exhibition held at the Danish Museum of Decorative Art. He took inspiration from the stools used by the shoemakers of the past, and transferred the light, elegant look to the creation of this sculptural three-legged stool. The Stool ML42 is still manufactured in Denmark with a focus on quality and Danish craftsmanship. ML42 comes in two siezes in beech, oak and black stained beech.

En designvirksomhed jeg vil holde øje med i fremtiden er danske By Lassen, der har rettighederne til to af Danmarks store arkitekter – Mogens Lassen (1901-1987) og Flemming Lassen (1902-1984). Udover den ikoniske kubusstage er jeg særligt vild med taburetten og barstolen ML42 som  Mogens Lassen designede i forbindelse med en møbeludstilling på Kunstindustimuseet i København. Han lod sig inspirere af datidens skomagerstole og overførte det lette og elegante udtryk til en skulpturel taburet. Taburet og barstol produceres fortsat i Danmark med fokus på kvalitet og dansk håndværk. ML42 fås i eg, bøg og sortbejdset bøg.
