    Flemming Lassen

    Architect Flemming Lassen (1902-1984) was a Modernist and was part of the movement to bring Functionalism to Denmark. Flemming Lassen is particularly well known for his work with Arne Jacobsen on the award-winning House of the Future and Søllerød Town Hall, and his furniture has also achieved international recognition. During his career, Flemming Lassen was honoured with many awards and grants for his unique designs and iconic architecture. Like his brother Mogens Lassen, Flemming Lassen already knew from a very young age that he would become an architect. He was born into an artistic family with a father who was a decorative painter and a mother who was a painter. As a child, he and his brother Mogens spent all of their savings on architecture books and their favourite pastime was measuring houses with the intent of sketching them. In 1910, Flemming and Mogens Lassen ended up in the same class as Arne Jacobsen at the same boarding school in Nærum, and the brothers' interest in architecture rubbed off on young Arne. They convinced him to become an architect, not a painter, and they later received a letter of thanks from Arne Jacobsen's father for their positive influence on his son.
