ARCH Lounge Chair

Magnus Læssøe Stephensen, 1932

A joyful design gesture and a characteristic expression, a functional chair, and a timeless, well-crafted material—these are the key elements of Magnus Læssøe Stephensen’s lounge chair from 1932, reintroduced by MAZO.


A timeless masterpiece

The ARCH chair, a timeless masterpiece, combines Bauhaus principles with Scandinavian elegance. Designed by Magnus
Læssøe Stephensen in 1932, it showcases his clever and playful use of materials and innovative production methods. The solid oak legs, steam bent into arches, provide stability, serve as armrests, and create a beautiful balance. With finishes like natural oak, ruby red, and auberge, the ARCH chair offers personalization and complements any interior style.


The ARCH chair, with its contrasting design, is an embodiment of the ‘midcentury’ functionalism that permeates mazo’s universe”

Beautifully balanced piece of furniture

The seat of the ARCH chair is made with traditional paper cord weave. The interplay between the paper cord and the oak frame creates a harmonious balance between texture and form, further enhancing the chair’s appeal as a design classic. The legs of the chair are crafted from two solid oak beams steam bent into two arches. These arches not only provide stability to the chair but also serve as armrests. Additionally, they contribute as an important design element, beautifully balancing the overall composition of the lounge chair.

Magnus Læssøe Stephensen

To his contemporaries Magnus Læssøe Stephensen was known for his particular style. A warm functionalism with tentacles reaching both Bauhaus and Japanese arts and crafts. He had a flair for the Japanese and ancient take on simplicity, and combined that with local Nordic materials – and it is safe to say that his relentless versions and variations of chairs found their way into many homes, where they have survived for generations.
