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.
