Børge Mogensen for Fredericia Dining Chair in Oak and Cane Wicker

About the Item

Børge Mogensen for Fredericia, dining chair, model ‘BM 61’, oak, cane wicker, Denmark, 1950s. This naturalistic looking chair is characterized by a splendid design featuring simple shapes and authentic materials. The frame is composed of slender wooden slats that are placed in a precise manner, resulting in a transparent and naked construction. Yet, the woven cane adds a warm accent to the frame, which contributes to the chair’s sturdiness appearance. Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was a Danish designer. His designs are defined by being high-quality, simple and functional. Mogensen can be seen as a democratic and idealistic designer. He aimed to solve basic problems in residential living. This meant that he designed for the middle-class and everyday use instead of for the more exclusive costumer. Contrary to his contemporaries in other countries such as Le Corbusier, Mogensen did not work with new modern materials such as steel and glass. Instead, he chose to work with tested materials such as leather and wood. Being trained by Kaare Klint, he was very focused on the human body and his ideal was to create comfortable furniture, not furniture that would end up in a museum. His designs are therefore honest, functional, simple and production friendly. Mogensen was extremely productive: hundreds of his designs went into production in his lifetime.
