Description

Carl Hansen & Søn’s BM1106 chair, designed by Børge Mogensen, is also known as the Huntsman chair. First introduced at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild furniture exhibition in 1950, the chair is part of a collection that draws on hunting lodges. Both rustic and refined at the same time, the chair was put back into production in 2019.

The BM1106 Huntsman chair is an intriguing combination of luxurious and characterful natural materials. The carefully crafted solid wood frame with skilful joinery is accompanied by a saddle-leather seat and backrest, which are attached to the frame with simple metal straps. The flexibility of the seat can thus be easily adjusted if needed. Handcrafted in Denmark, the Huntsman chair is a timeless design classic that will easily find its place in contemporary interiors, too.

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.
