Mogens Lassen was perceived as ‘the naughty boy in class’, but he aimed for perfection in each design project. His eye for detail, leaving nothing unnoticed, and his will to try out new methods are clearly seen in this characteristic and timeless chair.
It is contemporary proof of his habit of pushing the boundaries of materials and what was comme il faut.
The seat, manufactured in core leather, truly reaches the limits of how big pieces of leather can be and are enhanced by the moulded, yet massive wooden legs. In the middle of the 20th century, this technique was still in its early years.
The beautiful fittings work almost as a piece of jewellery on the chair and clearly illustrate how only the finest materials were selected. Mogens Lassen’s Saxe chair is a classic example of aesthetics and functionality enhancing one another.

Care note: 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. The colour will get patina and change over time.
