Designed by Børge Mogensen - Fredericia

Functional is the word which best describes Børge Mogensen’s design. The majority of his furniture was designed with industrial production in mind and is characterized by strong and simple lines. His true genius is to be found in his almost scientific analysis of the functionality of a piece of furniture. During his years at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts the young Børge Mogensen developed a close partnership with his mentor Kaare Klint and subsequently also assumed Klint’s approach to simple and functional furniture design. Later on Børge Mogensen was to work as Klint’s teaching assistant at the Royal Academy.

Description

Mogensen presented the prototype for the Søborg chair in 1950. His intention was to fuse plywood shells with his signature solid wood functionalism. The generous back and seat with optional upholstery provides for many hours of use.
