Mogens Koch (1898–1992) was a Danish architect and designer whose best-known works include popular modular shelving systems and the Folding Chair from 1933. Koch was a student of the legendary Danish designer Kaare Klint, who encouraged him to experiment with different fields of design, ranging from buildings and furniture to silverware and type fonts. After graduating, Koch worked for Kaare Klint until opening his own studio in 1934, and later he also served as a professor at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. During his career, Koch received several prestigious recognitions, such as the Eckersberg Medal in 1938 and the C. F. Hansen Medal in 1963.
