Carl Hansen & Søn’s BM0488 Table Bench, designed by Børge Mogensen in 1958, lives up to its name as both a bench and a slender side table. This multifunctional piece is a combination of many beautiful details: the solid oak frame is accompanied by a charming, hand-woven rattan top and finished with skilful joinery.

The BM0488 Table Bench will find its place in any room of the house – you can use it as a hallway bench, a side table in the living room, an additional table in the kitchen or an end-of-bed bench in the bedroom. The Table Bench is handcrafted 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.
