Architect Flemming Lassen (Denmark, 1902-1984) was a Modernist and was part of the movement to bring Functionalism to Denmark. Flemming Lassen is particularly well known for his work with Arne Jacobsen on the award-winning House of the Future and Søllerød Town Hall, and his furniture has also achieved international recognition. In the 1930s and early 1940s, with his unconventional curved furniture designs, Lassen contributed to the development of the Danish modern style. Always intent on simple, clearly defined lines, he also designed lamps and silverware
Today, you can’t mention Flemming Lassen without hammer prices automatically rising. His designs rarely appear at auction and are also very distinctive, making them extremely attractive to collectors.
