MZO Chair

Magnus Læssøe Stephensen, 1931

This iconic chair played a leading role in one of the fairy tales of Danish furniture design. However – more curiously – it is also on display at The Workers Museum in Copenhagen. This chair was designed specifically with the ambition to create a chair that working class Danes could afford.

With Mazo's new edition this classic chair is once again made available to everyone looking for a quality dining chair.

Prices from: 3.295 DKK / 440 EUR / 455 GBP / 360 USD

The chair is crafted in steam bend beechwood and is available with upholstery for extra comfort

Magnus Læssøe Stephensen's chair became a manifestation of meticulous craftsmanship and thoughtful design. Channeling Thonet's wood-bending innovation, Stephensen manipulated both the seat and the back in steam bent beechwood, curving, flattening, refining, and rounding until the final creation emerged.

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.
