Børge Mogensen designed the Søborg chairs in 1950, with the intention to make a shell chair that could be produced with new machinery of the times. The generous seat and back design, in Mogensen’s favorite materials, was the beginning of a shape seen in works throughout the rest of his career. In 2014, Fredericia Furniture has released an updated version to bring the spirit of Mogensen new life for generations to come.
Børge Mogensen was known as the furniture designer who created high-quality furniture at affordable prices for Danish homes. He went on to design some of the most renowned furniture designs of the 1950s and 1960s.
An exceptionally productive man, Mogensen’s collection of designs numbers into the thousands. New ideas came to him at any time of the day or night, and were scribbled down on matchboxes, table napkins, creased envelopes, or whatever was at hand.
The Søborg Chair is made of formed oak veneer with wood or steel frame. The chair is available in white-pigmented clear lacquered, black lacquered, white or grey painted over wood finish. This chair is also available with seat upholstered in fabric or leather.
