Designed by Mogens Lassen for Carl Hansen & Søn’s, the ML10097 coffee table, also known as the Egyptian table, was first presented at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild furniture exhibition in 1940. Lassen was inspired by the folding stands found in 1922 in the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, hence the name Egyptian.

A lover of functional design, Lassen aimed at creating a versatile and graceful coffee table that could be stored folded in a small space if needed. The small edges of the veneered tabletop and the brass details of the legs complement the table's distinctive, timeless design. The Egyptian table is made by hand in Denmark.

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.
