This small, low easy chair is part of a furniture set Mogens Koch designed for the 1936 Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition along with the Model 52 Sofa. Mogens Koch developed a striking construction for the pair of designs, loosely placing the upholstered section on a visible, solid wood frame, with the top row holding the seat securely in place.

A believer in honest design, Koch disliked legs that seemingly appeared out of nowhere, seeing this as cheap tricks. He felt that every design’s construction should be of a solid quality throughout, and similarly ruled against using upholstery to hide inferior material. The exposed frame structure is typical of the Danish functionalists’ idiom of separating the bearing and borne parts – or the frame from the seat – to make the construction a design feature in and of it self and accent the appeal of natural materials.


26.8″ W x 24.8″ D x 29.5″ H Seat Height: 17.3″.
