Børge Mogensen: Simplicity and Function

Edited with text by Michael Müller.

Especially famed for his Spanish Chair, Mogensen was one of the most important and influential representatives of Danish furniture design
Børge Mogensen was one of the most important and influential representatives of Danish furniture design. In a career spanning more than 30 years, he created a wealth of quality furniture, many pieces of which, such as his Spanish Chair, are still sold as design classics to this day. Influenced by traditional craftsmanship, Mogensen was also often inspired by Shaker furniture and design philosophies. A restless thinker, he noted down all of his ideas immediately—whether on matchboxes, napkins or used envelopes.

Watercolors by Finn Juhl

Text by Anne-Louise Sommer.

Among the great Danish designers, Finn Juhl (1912–89) ranks alongside such giants as Hans J. Wegner and Arne Jacobsen. He was particularly well known for his sculptural, seemingly organic tables, chairs and sofas, but the complex interior designs that he developed in the 1940s and 50s were also enormously successful.
