Architect Flemming Lassen (1902-1984) was a Modernist and was part of the movement to bring Functionalism to Denmark.
Like his brother Mogens Lassen, Flemming Lassen already knew from a very young age that he would become an architect. He was born into an artistic family with a father who was a decorative painter and a mother who was a painter. As a child, he and his brother Mogens spent all of their savings on architecture books and their favorite pastime was measuring houses with the intent of sketching them.
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. Today, his designs are rare and typically distinctive, making them highly attractive to collectors and pushing auction prices to record levels. In fact, an original Flemming Lassen designed Tired Man armchair from 1935 holds the record as the most expensive chair ever sold in Denmark. Flemming won many awards and grants for his architecture during his lifetime and he remains a significant influence on the Scandinavian design scene to this day.
