Tired Man Chair

Designed by Flemming Lassen

Tired Man Chair



Flemming Lassen designed the overstuffed easy chair, 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 cosiness and socializing by candlelight.

The ultimate collector's item, this chair is upholstered in luxe sheepskin and featured in the "Moonlight" colour. It is also available in 6 other colours.
