Børge Mogensen has crafted some of Denmark's finest furniture – this stunning set of armchairs is no exception. It's a bold design that features a refined, organic frame with sculpted arms and a clean look.

The armchairs are derived from the 2213 Sofa which was created for Mogensen's own home in 1962, incorporating natural materials and a high level of craftsmanship. It's impressive that this design holds such a legacy as it is often copied or referenced for its simplicity and confidence.

Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was a renowned Danish furniture designer, recognized for his significant contributions to mid-20th-century Scandinavian design. Born in Aalborg, Denmark, Mogensen's work is characterized by its functional simplicity, craftsmanship, and focus on human needs.

Mogensen studied at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts and later worked under influential Danish designer Kaare Klint. This experience heavily influenced his design philosophy, emphasizing the importance of functionality and practicality in furniture design.

In 1950 Mogensen opened his own design studio. His inspiration, came from many cultures and styles, including the Shaker movement, ethnic arts, Japanese carvings, and historic works. He also had a strong belief that furniture should be accessible to the broader public, which led to the creation of many well-crafted and affordable pieces.

Throughout his career, Børge Mogensen collaborated with various Danish furniture manufacturers, including FDB (Fællesforeningen for Danmarks Brugsforeninger) and Fredericia Furniture. Some of his most iconic designs include the Spanish Chair, a leather and oak lounge chair inspired by traditional Spanish furniture, and the J39 Shaker Chair, which exemplifies his dedication to simple, durable, and practical design.

Over his lifetime Mogensen received many prestigious awards. In 1950, he was awarded the Eckersberg Medal, he won the Danish Furniture Prize in 1971 and in 1972, was awarded the C.F. Hansen Medal, and appointed Honorary Royal Designer for Industry at the Royal Society of Arts in London.
