BY LASSEN INTRODUCES A MOGENS
LASSEN DINING TABLE FROM 1975
Architect Mogens Lassen was very interested in kitchens and dining rooms, being particularly inspired by the large open restaurant kitchens he encountered during his time living in France. Throughout his life, Mogens designed a number of dining tables for the innovative open planned kitchens found in many of his architectural projects. Conekt was designed in 1975 by Mogens Lassen but has never actually been put into production until now.
The dining table is an important piece of furniture throughout Scandinavia, acting as the centre of family life where people gather to talk, laugh and spend time together. Conekt is designed to embrace this role, providing a focal point for the room and everyone present.
Conekt has the same simple, clean expression that can be found in many of Mogens Lassen’s designs and once again reveals the architect’s love of minimalism. With
Mogens Lassen, nothing was ever left to chance and this philosophy is clearly seen in Conekt. The custom-made L shaped brackets connecting the table’s top with its legs are thought through to the smallest detail. Sitting perfectly flat, the brackets add an industrial beauty to the minimalist table, giving it a unique character and edge. Conekt’s square wooden frame legs are attached with precision at each end of the table, creating a slim silhouette that has a light and timeless expression.
“Conekt’s high quality finish and attention to detail makes it sturdy enough for daily use but also stylish enough to be used for parties and special occasions,” says Nadia Lassen, Director and Co-Owner of by Lassen.
Conekt is produced in Denmark with a focus on quality and traditional craftsmanship. The dining table will be available in stores and at bylassen. com in February 2017.
