The Tired Man Footstool



Flemming Lassen designed the overstuffed easy chair and footstool, The Tired Man, for The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Competition in 1935. It is characterized by organic, bear-like shapes and then as now it created a sensation with its curved form and voluminous armrests. Sitting in the chair should, in Flemming Lassen’s own words, be ”as warm and safe as a polar bear cub in the arms of its mother in the middle of the ice cap”. The family man Flemming Lassen valued intimate relationships - with its warm exterior, The Tired Man invokes domestic coziness and socializing by candlelight. Other colors and fabrics available upon request.
