Børge Mogensen Teak Dining Table with 14 David Rosen Chairs, 1960s, Sweden

About

Teak dining table designed by Børge Mogensen for Karl Andersson & Söner in the 1960s. The table belongs to the Øresund series and has model number 140. The table without leaves measures 67" in length. It has 4 additional 23" extension leaves to create seating for 14 at 162". The dining chairs, designed by David Rosen for Nordiska Kompaniet were purchased and have accompanied the table since the early 1960s. The chairs measure: 33" H x19" W x 20.25" D with a seat height of 17". Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was a Danish furniture designer. He graduated from Denmarks Designskole and at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine arts. Right after his studies he worked for various architects, design studios and furniture factories, including Karl Andersson & Söner. Since 1953, he also worked as an independent designer. Swedish furniture designer David Rosén (1910-1993) is largely linked by his midcentury involvement with esteemed department store and modernist furniture manufacturer, Nordiska Kompaniet (NK). Rosén produced a variety of casegoods, tables, and chairs, often brass-framed and constructed, as was the Scandinavian modernist m.o.

About Børge Mogensen (Designer)

Among the great mid-20th century Danish furniture designers, Børge Mogensen distinguished himself with his faith to traditional values of craftsmanship and honesty of materials. While peers such as Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl and Arne Jacobsen designed some of the most striking and now iconic furnishings of the era, Mogensen focused on making pieces that were simple, durable and comfortable — and in the long run perhaps more useful and better loved.

     Mogensen studied under and later worked for Kaare Klint, a master cabinetmaker whose chief tenets were quality of construction and simplicity of line. Klint was a classicist, who believed that furniture forms should evolve from those of historical models. So, too, in his way was Mogensen, as two of his best-known earlier pieces attest. His 1945 “Spokeback Sofa,” with hinged arms that can be lowered to facilitate lounging, is a reinterpretation of the venerable Knole settee. With the oval silhouette of its plywood backrest and waterdrop-shaped cutouts, Mogenson’s “Shell chair,” designed in 1949, can be seen as a novel take on early 19th century Empire side chairs.

     Yet Mogensen shared the aesthetical sensibilities of his most forward-looking colleagues. His cabinets deploy the same spare geometries and lushly figured woods as those of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and his disciple Florence Knoll, the chief difference being that Mies and Knoll used chrome steel for the frames and legs of their pieces. The brawny oak frames and slung leather seats and backrests of Mogensen’s “Hunting chair” (1950) and “Spanish chair” (1959) display the same hefty construction and appreciation of natural materials seen in the work of Charlotte Perriand and Sergio Rodrigues. As you will see from the furnishings on these pages, Børge Mogensen designed for function more than sculptural effect. While his chairs may not be the first pieces in a décor to draw the eye, they are often the first to draw in those looking for a comfortable seat.
