Flemming Lassen designed My Own Chair in 1938 for the Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition in Copenhagen. As the design was ahead of its time, it was not put into production but remained in the architect’s personal use and became his favourite chair. The sculptural but comfortable piece of furniture catches the eye with its large, curved backrest and alludes to Lassen’s love for simple, rounded forms, precise details and functionality. When his son sold the original chair in an auction in 2014, the hammer price was a staggering 120 000 euros. Two years later, My Own Chair was launched By Lassen and is now available to all fans of Danish design classics.
