Description

The Spanish Chair, designed by Børge Mogensen for Fredericia, is a Danish design icon from 1958. The Spanish Chair consists of a sturdy oak frame with a leather seat and backrest, complemented with wide armrests which also function as practical little tables. Mogensen found the inspiration for the armrests from the chairs he saw while travelling in Spain through areas influenced by old Islamic culture. Due to the broad armrests, the Spanish Chair can be used without a separate side table, making the surrounding space more open.

The name of the chair also refers to a medieval Spanish furniture technique in which saddle leather was attached to a solid wooden frame. Mogensen created several variations of the technique, the first time already in the Hunting Lodge collection in 1950 – the Spanish Chair has influences from the rustic lodge atmosphere, but its refined appearance makes it also a pure, timeless classic. The chair has been manufactured in Denmark.

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.
