The chair J39 designed by Børge Mogensen, nicknamed “The People’s Chair” for it’s incredible versatility and appeal for everyone in any environment.
It is believed that it was a surplus of wooden pins and dowels in the factory stores that led Børge Mogensen to design J39 in 1947. Perhaps that was a fortunate coincidence, as today it is one of Denmark’s most sold wooden chairs, and has been in uninterrupted production ever since it was launched.
J39 is the obvious choice for everything from canteens to conference halls, churches to private homes, and is popularly known as the People’s Chair. This simple, yet unique chair was inspired by Mogensen’s mentor, Kaare Klint, as well as American Shaker furniture. The curved backrest and hand-woven seat make the J39 a comfortable dining chair in an aesthetically pleasing quality.
The subtle design language means that it can be added to an existing interior, or serve as a room’s visual hub. J39 has a solid beech or oak frame. It is also available in painted finishes, and seat corded with black or natural paper yarn.
J39 is made of solid beech or oak frame with hand corded natural or black paper cord seat. The chair is available in lacquered or soap treated beech as well as lacquered, soaped treated, oiled, black lacquered or painted oak in Fredericia standard colours.
