Børge Mogensen for Fredericia, hunting chair, model AG 240-11, oak, teak, metal, wool, Denmark, 1954.

Rare hunting chair designed by one of Denmark's masters of mid-century design; Børge Mogensen. This distinctive design has a very strong appearance. The sincere construction and woolen upholstery in grey, gives the chair a character of its own. Due to the great proportions and the sloping backrest the chair provides great comfort. Its frame is executed in dark stained quarter sawn oak. Characteristic for this design are the metal strips decorated with teak that are installed on both sides of the seating.

Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was a Danish designer. His designs are defined by being high-quality, simple and functional. Mogensen can be seen as a democratic and idealistic designer. He aimed to solve basic problems in residential living. This meant that he designed for the middle-class and everyday use instead of for the more exclusive costumer. Contrary to his contemporaries in other countries such as Le Corbusier, Mogensen did not work with new modern materials such as steel and glass. Instead, he chose to work with tested materials such as leather and wood. Being trained by Kaare Klint, he was very focused on the human body and his ideal was to create comfortable furniture, not furniture that would end up in a museum. His designs are therefore honest, functional, simple and production friendly. Mogensen was extremely productive: hundreds of his designs went into production in his lifetime.
