Børge Mogensen’s Craftsmanship Revived in Versatile Table Bench
04/02/2020 - Carl Hansen & Son presents a versatile and carefully crafted design by Børge Mogensen the BM0488 Table Bench.

Originally created to complement the BM0865 Daybed, this multi-functional piece with woven detailing forms part of Mogensen’s ‘building furniture’ concept through which he conceived enduring furniture that could be added to and adapted over time in response to changing needs and living situations.

When the Daybed and Table Bench are used in combination, the woven tabletop is at the same level as the soft surface of the daybed cushion, making them perfect partners in pairs or in groups, enabling versatile seating landscapes to be configured and reconfigured to suit the space or the occasion.  

Testament to the ‘building furniture’ approach is the versatility of the piece, which is just as appropriate as a bench in an entrance hall or at the end of a bed, or as a coffee table or side table paired with a more conventional armchair or sofa. It is an independent furniture piece, which can stand alone or be part of different indoor environments, creating a calm environment that exudes wellbeing wherever it is placed.

“The BM0488 Table Bench is unbelievably beautiful, and the soft weaving and finish are particularly well executed. The piece fits perfectly into Carl Hansen & Son’s collection,” says Knud Erik Hansen, CEO of Carl Hansen & Son.

Like many of Mogensen’s designs, the BM0488 Table Bench is crafted in solid oak, and in this case, it uses ‘heartwood’, the dense and flawless inner portion of the trunks. This handsome natural material is handled with highly skilled craftsmanship, resulting in details such as traditional cabinetry joints and the rounded edges that repeat in the legs and rails, all topped with the double–woven surface.

The expression of the BM0488 Table Bench is one of effortless excellence. The double weaving is simultaneously durable and decorative and demonstrates the highly crafted finish that gives this furniture piece a soul you cannot live without. It will look beautiful for generations to come,” says Knud Erik Hansen.

Original design
Different iterations of the BM0488 Table Bench have been manufactured over the decades since it was conceived. In close collaboration with Mogensen’s sons who run his studio today, Carl Hansen & Son has gone back to the original design. The ‘BM0488’ in the product’s name is taken from the reference number Mogensen scribed onto his earliest sketches.

“We are so happy for Carl Hansen & Son to put our father’s furniture back into production as it brings him even further out into the world and into the light with his many furniture pieces for people's homes,” say Børge Mogensen’s sons Thomas and Peter Mogensen.
 
The BM0488 Table Bench is proudly presented alongside the BM0865 Daybed, also by Mogensen and part of his ‘building furniture’ system – developed in the early part of his career.Børge Mogensen’s Craftsmanship Revived in Versatile Table Bench
