Børge Mogensen Set of Eight Dining Chairs in Teak

About

Børge Mogensen for Soborg, set of 8 chairs model 122, teak, Denmark, circa 1950. This set of chairs is derived from the shell chair that Mogensen designed in 1949 for the cabinetmakers guild. The shell chair distinguishes itself by the use of a plywood molding technique. So even though the back of the chair is thin, it is immensely strong. The chair consists of two wide and slightly curved shells, constituting the seat and back respectively, and resting on a slender frame with angled legs. The chair belong to a line of furniture that Mogensen designer for Søborg furniture. 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 focussed 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.
