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.
In 1963 Mogensen designed 2202, and upholstered ottoman to be paired with his wing chair. The distinctively simple design however, works well with other furniture or even on it’s own.
Upholstered in a selection of Fredericia textiles and leathers.
