ARCH Upholstered Collection

Mazo x Magnus Læssøe Stephensen, 2020

The ARCH collection is a tribute to Architect Magnus Læssøe Stephensen (1903-1984), whose designs mazo owns the exclusive right to.

Mazo x Magnus Læssøe Stephensen

Mazo has been through the archives and hand-picked design elements from Magnus Læssøe Stephensen’s early furniture designs. The armrest, for example, is strongly inspired by a chair designed in the 1920s by Læssøe Stephensen and the base is a tribute to Scandinavian modernism.


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

ARCH, whose name is inspired by the architectural arches of the legs, is designed based on Scandinavian modernism.

The collection consists of a lounge chair, a two-seater and a three-seater with an organically shaped armrest in oiled oak and is available in various upholsteries.

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.
