    Børge Mogensen

    Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) started his career as a cabinetmaker in 1934. In 1936 he went on to study at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts under Professor Kaare Klint before entering the Royal Academy of Fine Arts from where he graduated as an architect in 1942.

    He became head of design at FDB (the Danish Co-Op) in 1942 before establishing his own design office in 1950.

    During his years at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts the young Mogensen developed a close partnership with his mentor Kaare Klint and subsequently also assumed Klint's approach to simple and functional furniture design. Later on Mogensen was to work as Klint's teaching assistant at the Royal Academy.

    Functional is the word which best describes Børge Mogensen's design. The majority of his furniture was designed with industrial production in mind and is characterized by strong and simple lines. His true genius is to be found in his almost scientific analysis of the functionality of a piece of furniture.

    A smaller but essential part of Mogensen's work was the cabinetmade pieces, one of them being "The Hunting chair" from 1950 made by Erhard Rasmussen. A simple low easy chair with an oak frame from where the strong natural leather seat and back is stretched.

    Other important pieces include "The Spokeback Sofa" designed in 1945, which with its lightness and simple, open construction differed from most sofas at the time, and "The Spanish Chair" from 1959, a low, robust easy chair
