Carl Hansen & Søn's BM1871 outdoor bench is part of Børge Mogensen's reinterpreted Deck Chair range, created by the legendary designer in the late 1960s. The sleek BM1871 garden bench exudes the simple functionality of the Shaker style, and its minimalistic form captures the eye. Over the years, natural patina adds even more character to the piece as the teak turns a beautiful silver hue. 

An elegant nod to the relaxed aesthetics of picnic tables, the BM1871 bench was designed to accompany the BM1771 outdoor dining table. The clever bench can easily be combined with other styles as well and is a charming addition to both the garden and the terrace as such. The folding bench is also easy to store – the furniture in the collection can even be neatly hung on the wall using the wall-mounted BM527OS rack.

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.
