The ARCH collection is a tribute to architect
Magnus Læssøe Stephensen (1903-1984)
ARCH originates from a basic study of forms and embodies a mixture of lightness and weight as contrasts in discreet interaction with each other; straight sculptural lines are flanked by the curves of the armrest, an embodiment of the ‘midcentury’ functionalism.

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.
