ML42 Stool

$819 - $1,259



Description

Taking inspiration from the humble wood seats used by shoemakers of the past, Mogens Lassen devised his own sculptural take on a 3-legged wood stool. ML42 began as a standout in a 1942 furniture exhibition at the Danish Museum of Decorative Art and is still made in Denmark to this day with a focus on quality and a legacy of craftsmanship. Long considered a collector’s item, the dining-height stool comes in natural or brown oiled oak or a black stained version.

Among the fathers of Functionalism— the modernist movement where form is driven by the undecorated materials and the purpose of the object—brothers Mogens and Flemming Lassen contributed to the Danish Modern style as architects and furniture designers, highly awarded during life and their early pieces now command stratospheric prices at auction. With such a proud legacy, Søren Lassen (Mogens’ grandson) launched By Lassen in 2008 to reintroduce both his grandfathers’ iconic work along with new pieces by Søren, a notable designer in his own right.

The Kubus series, introduced upon the company’s 10th anniversary, is in keeping with the movement his forebearers championed, minimalist and geometric in form and modern in making: it is sustainably produced with up to 95% recycled steel at By Lassen's factory in Holstebro, Denmark. Of course, Mogen’s minimalist but voluptuous seating proportions live on in pieces like the Tired Man armchair and Wilhelm sofa; while Flemming, inspired by an early encounter with Le Corbusier in Paris, took a more angular route with output like his aptly named Frame storage range.

“It is By Lassen’s vision to share the Lassen brothers’ legacy with the coming generations,” says Søren, who has also made it his mission for the house to offer pieces from other rising talent that reflects the By Lassen design language, “as beacons of the Danish design tradition that has inspired so many design talents.”
