The brothers Mogens and Flemming Lassen with their characteristic architecture belong to the greatest functionalists of Denmark. The designer Kristina Dam honoured the brothers’ work with her art prints for by Lassen.
The art print Julsø displays one of the most famous works by Mogens Lassen. Back then as well as today, Julsø House is an impressive example of modern architecture, which doesn’t age: With its round and harmonic lines it is a piece of the history of Danish architecture. The Julsø House has ca. 600 square metres and was designed in 1966 with its interior giving the impression of an endless room inside of it.
The house is an example for the dissolution of strong lines of architecture, known not only from the Bauhaus, but also from Danish functionalism. The Julsø House is not less functional, but without the formal strictness of the earlier designs by Mogens Lassen.
The Julsø House is near the shore of the eponymous lake Julsø, with view to the lake and the Himmelbjerg mountain, a place steeped in history in the middle of Denmark. The 17 arches characteristic for the house trace the hilly landscape and fit in it harmonically. Its appearance is one of the most exceptional and unmistakable works by Mogens Lassen.
Kristina Dam and by Lassen pay tribute to this characteristic design with the Julsø art print. And legendary architecture can makes its way into any house.
