Description

Fredericia’s Canvas chair from 1970 is one of legendary Danish designer Børge Mogensen’s final designs. He created the clear-lined, minimalist seat as a protest to colorful plastic furniture in the effort of again imbuing people’s homes with harmony and a natural feel with the help of simple shapes and high-quality materials.

The Canvas chair is easy to recognize as Mogensen’s work due to the strong vertical and horizontal lines of the design. The lines also reinforce the contrast created by the flat canvas between pieces of rounded wood and the frame consisting of rectangular pieces of oak. Despite the angular silhouette, the Canvas chair is characterized by a serene expression that adapts easily to a variety of interiors.

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.
