Børge Mogensen Armchairs in Solid Oak
Børge Mogensen for Fredericia Stolefabrik, armchairs '238', in solid oak and leather, Denmark, 1964. These chairs remind of the classical foldable 'director-chairs', yet this design by Danish designer Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) is from a more sturdy character. Almost as a trademark of Mogensen these chairs are executed in solid oak, with seating and back from thick cognac saddle leather. The lines and forms are simple, yet with the right amount of tension. The wide armrests, wood-joints and cross-connections are nice details to these dining chairs. The cognac leather is in good condition. The buckles and straps on the back give the saddle leather and even more sturdy appearance. An all-over patina is visible on the natural leather. With spots, scratches and traces, which makes every chair to the unique piece it is today.
