Description

Fredericia’s BM62 armchair boasts a simple, natural look, courtesy of Danish designer Børge Mogensen. To him, both timelessness and durability were about stripping away everything unnecessary and focusing on high-quality materials and artisanship. In the BM62 chair, this notion is visible in the natural linen webbing and exposed, finely crafted joints of the wooden frame. The materials will also develop a lovely patina over time, further enhancing the natural beauty of the design.

The armchair is designed to suit various purposes. Think about a dinner party, for example: during the meal, the lower part of the backrest helps you keep your posture, and after dessert, when you stay at the table chatting, the upper part allows a more relaxed sitting position. Due to both the comfort the chair provides and its refined look, the BM62 chair is easy to envision in any space from private residences to hotels, restaurants and museums.

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.
