About this designer: Børge Mogensen
Børge Mogensen
Børge Mogensen was known as the furniture designer who created high-quality furniture at affordable prices for Danish homes. He went on to design some of the most renowned furniture designs of the 1950s and 1960s. An exceptionally productive man, Mogensen’s collection of designs numbers into the thousands. New ideas came to him at any time of the day or night, and were scribbled down on matchboxes, table napkins, creased envelopes, or whatever was at hand. His lifelong mission was to create simple and practical furniture for everyone. Appearance was important, but never at the expense of functionality. He disapproved of colleagues who succumbed to the whims of fashion, ignored functionality or used excessively expensive materials. In the same breath, he defiantly brushed off any criticism for only using wood, his preferred material in all its different embodiments

Description

The theme of the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild’s autumn exhibition in 1950 was 'the Hunting Lodge'. Børge Mogensen used this as an opportunity to create one of his more extraordinary pieces of furniture. Like several of his classics, the idea was conceived late at night in the company of good friends – and in this case on a matchbox. The Hunting Chair’s rounded armrests, seat, and back that adjust to the body’s weight make it a very comfortable chair. Despite the front seat edge height of just 30 cm above the floor, the armrests make the chair easy to get up from. The frame is made of oak, while the seat and back are of butt leather, with adjustable straps. This rustic and masculine combination of materials, which give a very special patina, was further developed by Mogensen in other pieces such as The Spanish Chair. The Hunting Chair is a sculpture that only becomes even more stunning with time.
