Mazo x Magnus Læssøe Stephensen, 2020

With ARCH, mazo is taking new paths with their forward-looking modernism. The series is a tribute to the renowned Danish designer and Architect Magnus Læssøe Stephensen (1903-1984). A multi talent who also designed for established brands as Fritz Hansen and Kay Bojesen in the early days. He was known for his particular style, warm functionalism with tentacles reaching both Bauhaus and Japanese arts and crafts.  

Mazo has been through the archives and hand-picked design elements from Architect Magnus Læssøe Stephensen’s early furniture designs. The curved armrest in oak veneer is strongly inspired by a chair from the 1920s by him and the base is a tribute to Scandinavian modernism; Straight sculptural lines are flanked by the curves of the armrest, an embodiment of the ‘midcentury’ functionalism that is the equivalence of mazo’s universe. A new everlasting design classic is born.
