Description

Audo Copenhagen’s Saxe lounge chair was designed by architect Mogens Lassen in 1955 for The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Competition. The beautiful chair features a folding oak frame and a seat in natural leather which will develop a beautiful patina over time and use. By Lassen brought the Saxe lounge chair, originally made by master joiner A. J. Iversen, back in production to celebrate the chair’s 60th anniversary. The timeless design continues to charm decade after decade, only getting better with time!

Notes
Please note that genuine leather is a natural material that requires maintenance and becomes even more beautiful if it is properly cared over time. The changes and stretch in the leather should be expected and is not seen as a product fault. Both the leather and the soap treated oak will develop a patina over time.
Care instructions
Do not place in direct sunlight or extreme heat. Do not use sharp objects on the leather. Core leather is a very receptive material and is therefore responsive for any kind of moisture. To care and clean core leather, only use leather treatment intended to core leather.To minimize the risk of stains and marks, liquid, grease etc. should be removed from the wooden surfaces straight away. For more information on care instructions for soap treated oak, please contact our Customer Service.

Mogens Lassen

The Danish architect Mogens Lassen (1901-1987) was a pioneer of Danish functionalism. In 1927 he left to work for an engineering company, but he did not enjoy the work nor speak French. Paris however changed Lassen’s view on architecture and when he returned to Denmark he established his own studio. 

Along with working in architecture Lassen also designed furniture and other objects, and his Kubus candlestick has become an icon of Danish design. Lassen started designing the first Kubus long before it was first produced in 1962 - the Kubus candlesticks were not put on the market, and Lassen gave them to family members and friends. The grandchildren and grand-grandchildren of Lassen established the design company By Lassen in 2008 to honor the work of Mogens Lassen and his brother Flemming Lassen.
