The elegant Egyptian Table easily collapses for storage with the release of a small brass sliding latch beneath the tabletop - a flexible design that exemplifies the functionalism inherent 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.
