Offered by Vance Trimble, Mogens Lassen's, 1946 Egyptian Folding Stool in Ash and Natural Leather. Presented in 1946 at the Copenhagen cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition on the stand of cabinetmaker Jørgen Wolff’s Møbelsnedkeri, this exquisite stool is possibly unique. It fits perfectly into Mogens Lassens’ oeuvre of furniture inspired by early Egyptian types. For the stool’s legs, Lassen revisited the elements he used in his famous round folding table of 1940, first made by the cabinetmaker A.J. Iversen in that year.
Leather seat made and stamped on the underside by Ivan Schlechter.
