The Tired Man Lounge Chair, Sheepskin

The Tired Man Lounge Chair, Sheepskin

Designer Flemming Lassen

Flemming Lassen designed the overstuffed easy chair, The Tired Man, for The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Competition in 1935. It is characterized by organic, bearlike shapes and then as now it created a sensation with its curved form and voluminous armrests. Sitting in the chair should, in Flemming Lassen's own words, be "as warm and safe as a polar bear cub in the arms of its mother in the middle of the ice caps". The family man Flemming Lassen valued intimate relationships - with its warm exterior, The Tired Man invokes domestic coziness and socializing by candlelight.

Flemming Lassen

Credited for his role in bringing functionalism to Denmark, Flemming Lassen was an architect and designed noted for his exacting craftsmanship and naïve expression. Lassen drew much of his inspiration from the architect Mies van der Rohe and the tenets of the Bauhaus artistic movement —a less is more approach focused on form, function and novel materials counterbalanced with human needs. His original and distinctive designs with timeless silhouettes still resonate today.
