Borge Mogensen: Spanish Chair
Fredericia, imported from Denmark.
The robust chair delights in the natural and humanising qualities of its materials. Based on a vernacular Spanish chair, Mogensen’s design achieves a certain timelessness.
The Spanish chair is in production since 1959, unites Borge Mogensen’s sense of working with quality materials with a formal inspiration deriving from traditional Spanish furniture. A second source of inspiration is hunting furniture and in 1950 Mogensen made a ‘Hunt-cabin’ series. The Spanish chair appears solid in its construction of oak with a stretched seat and back of natural leather with red borders. All parts of the wooden construction follow straight lines which give an impression of simplicity and robustness and also makes the chair easier to produce. The arm rests are cut from wide boards which are finished off with a rounding that makes the arm rests comfortable.
