FDB Møbler’s J52B chair is Børge Mogensen’s interpretation of a classic English Windsor chair from 1952. The J52B chair is one of the most iconic pieces of Danish design, and it gained popularity even at the Presidency of the United States, where it became known as President Kennedy's favourite armchair. With its curved armrests and high, spindled back, J52B makes a great chair for relaxing, and its sleek, upright design also serves as a dining chair. The chair has been granted the Nordic Swan Ecolabel.

Børge Mogensen

Danish furniture designer Børge Mogensen (1914 –1972) was one of the most influential designers of the Danish modern. Mogensen studied furniture design at Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and his designs aimed at functionality, minimalist appearance and easy accessibility. Soon after his graduation Mogensen was named the chief of Danish Consumers’ Co-operative Society FDB, which focused on producing functional, durable and affordable furniture for all social classes.

Mogensen’s designs were often extremely modest and confident at the same time, and the same goes for his personality. Mogensen preferred to work with traditional and natural materials, but also liked to experiment with new techniques and supported the industrial production of furniture. His work was also influenced by folk art, lithography and Japanese wood carvings. During his career Mogensen was awarded with the Eckersberg Medal and C.F. Hansen Medal, and in 1972 he was named Honorary Royal Designer for Industry by the British Royal Society of Arts.
