Magnus Læssøe Stephensen, 1935
1935 is the date on the first draft of this sofa by the renowned multitalent and Danish architect Magnus Læssøe Stephensen, which have now been revived under the name TMBO. The TMBO series was designed in a shape that, in the laid back confident attitude, celebrates life with the same dramatic simplicity that Magnus Læssøe Stephensen found in Japanese design tradition. The TMBO Chair and sofa alike, with the significant curved form, send a promise to hold your back whilst you lean back and enjoy the ride into the future.

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.
