Flemming Lassen designed the overstuffed easy chair, The Tired Man, for The Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Competition in 1935. It is characterized by organic, bearlike shapes and then as now it created a sensation with its curved form and voluminous armrests. Sitting in the chair should, in Flemming Lassen's own words, be "as warm and safe as a polar bear cub in the arms of its mother in the middle of the ice caps". Flemming Lassen was a family man who valued personal relationships, a principle noticeable in this piece with its warm exterior, The Tired Man invokes domestic coziness and socializing by candlelight.
