Børge Mogensen for Fredericia Stolefabrik, three-seat sofa model BM2213, leather and stained oak, Denmark, 1962

Very well balanced design by Børge Mogensen. The model 2213 was designed by Mogensen for his own home. The cognac leather shows admirable patina and a warm colour. Three seating and three back cushions provie great comfort. Because the backrest and armrests are almost on the same height the curve between both heights adds a certain dynamic touch.

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 focussed 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.
