Description

Fredericia’s Søborg chair is part of Børge Mogensen’s collection featuring bent plywood seats. The collection was inspired by an international design competition for low-cost furniture organized by MoMA New York in 1948. The first Søborg chairs with a wooden frame were released in 1950, and in 1952 the collection grew with metal-framed versions. The chairs are excellent examples of Mogensen’s fresh, timeless functionalism that easily suits any environment from residential spaces to restaurants and other public areas. Søborg chairs are 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.
