Mogensen, who was called an ally of the common people, aimed to make effective use of the small space of the house and create high-quality furniture that ordinary households could buy at an affordable price.
Mogensen has a fondness for Spain, and has found inspiration on several family trips. Among them, I was inspired by the width of the arm of a wooden chair made of a single piece of leather that was used by the aristocracy of Spain. A chair designed to be held. Mogensen has redesigned the traditional Spanish chair style to make it simpler and more simple. At the time, the single-leather design was designed to help harness craftsmen who lost their jobs due to the spread of cars. It is designed to be tightened with A powerful, rustic and beautiful personal chair.
Borge Mogensen (Denmark, 1914-1972) / About Borge Mogensen
Denmark's leading furniture designer along with Hans J. Wegner and Finn Juhl.
Mogensen, who eliminated unnecessary decorations and pursued the beauty of lean structures, studied under Koa Klint at the furniture department of the Design School, the predecessor of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. After that, I learned design from Clint as an assistant. At the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, I was deeply devoted to Clint's approach to design that emphasized human anatomy and his ideas. I specialized in designing furniture for the common people and furniture that was easy to use in mass production systems.
After finishing his apprenticeship as a cabinetmaker in 1934, Mogensen then began to study furniture design in earnest, working at the design studios of Koa Klint and Mogens Koch. He continued this until 1942 when he was appointed Chief Designer of the Furniture Department of the Danish Co-operative FDB, where he designed high quality, affordable furniture for the general public.
His works are always designed from the public's point of view, and among modern Danish furniture, many of them are exceptionally functional and durable. Ta. Based on Shaker furniture, he is known for designing simple, easy-to-use and durable furniture.
