Architect Flemming Lassen (1902-1984) was a modernist and part of the movement to bring functionalism to Denmark. He is particularly renowned for his overstuffed furniture, receiving major international recognition in the design world for his armchairs which today have become known as “the Flemming Lassen style”. Attended boarding school with Arne Jacobsen and his brother Mogens Lassen, the three of them maintained a close bond through childhood and later in life as colleagues. His iconic 'The Tired Man' armchair designed in 1935 holds the record as the most expensive chair ever sold in Denmark.
