ARCH Lounge Chair in McNutt

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. With its archetypal design, ARCH is a sharply cut collection with both edge and pure elegance combined. It pays homage to both the architect’s stroke and Scandinavian modernism, which is characterized by simple and functional designs.

ARCH, whose name is inspired by the architectural arches of the legs, is designed based on Scandinavian modernism. A time that was characterized by simplicity, functionality and stripped of superfluous details. ARCH originates from a basic study of forms and embodies a mixture of lightness and weight, as contrasts in discreet interaction with each other: the straight sculptural lines are flanked by the curves of the armrest.

Danish Architect Magnus Læssøe Stephensen (1903-1984)

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.
