Arch Chair, 1932

The ARCH chair, a timeless masterpiece, combines Bauhaus principles with Scandinavian elegance. Designed by Magnus Læssøe Stephensen in 1932, showcasing his clever and playful use of materials and innovative production methods. The solid oak legs, steam bent into arches, provide stability, serve as armrests, and create a beautiful balance. With finishes like natural oak, ruby red, and auberge, the ARCH chair offers personalization and complements any interior style.

The seat of the ARCH chair is made with a traditional paper cord weave. The interplay between the paper cord and the oak frame creates a harmonious balance between texture and form, enhancing the chair’s appeal as a classic design. The legs of the chair are crafted from two solid oak beams steam bent into two arches. These arches provide stability to the chair and serve as armrests. Additionally, they contribute as an important design element, beautifully balancing the overall composition of the lounge chair.

Magnus Læssøe Stephensen

It was not meant as a compliment when old cabinetmakers called the young architect Magnus Læssøe Stephensen “a revolutionary”. But in a sense they were right. His curating of the important Annual Guild Exhibition was one of the starting points of the “revolution”, which later came to be known as the Golden Age of Danish Design. As curator, Magnus Læssøe Stephensen banned the usual bourgeois polished mahogany drawing room interior from the exhibition. Instead he demanded that the cabinetmaker should cooperate with architects to present a vision of an entire interior for a two bedroom flat, like those most ordinary people were moving into! Bang! 


A new democratic mind-set, suggesting that design was about improving people’s lives, and a mind-set that resulted in an unpretentious aesthetic, where function and respect for craftsmanship is central. This aesthetic has since become synonymous with Nordic design.
