Børge Mogensen for Søborg Møbler, pair of dining chairs model 157, stained teak, papercord, Denmark, 1960s

This design features a geometric backrest that slightly curves to provide comfort for the user. Space between the back and the seat creates an airy and transparant look. The woven seat in paper cord gives the overall unit a natural and rustic, textured touch. In absence of decorative details, the design convinces visually through the well-balanced appearance and the stabile construction.

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.
