The ML10097 Egyptian Table was designed by Mogens Lassen to easily collapse for storage with the release of a small brass sliding latch beneath the tabletop. It is a flexible coffee table that exemplifies the functionalism present in classic furniture types. For Lassen and his contemporaries, function was paramount. Their approach – strongly influenced by Kaare Klint – often began with the careful study and refinement of long-existing archetypes such as safari-style knockdown chairs, British Windsor and Chippendale chairs, and flexible, practical tables like the Egyptian Table. These clear, proven furniture types appealed to mid-century design and architecture visionaries, upholding their core belief that intelligent, purposeful design never goes out of style.

Mogens Lassen

Denmark (1901-1987)

Architect Mogens Lassen trained at the Technical School 1919-23 and continued his training at various design practices. He had his own design practice from 1935.

Mogens Lassen was inspired by European functionalism, which particularly characterized his early works. The white single-family houses are influenced by Le Corbusier’s cubism, and the simple steel tube furniture, such as the armchair (RP03169), by the German Bauhaus school.
