Børge Mogensen conceived the BM45701 Dining Chair in the late 1960s, as a part of his Deck Chair Series of functional outdoor furniture. The chair’s simple, slatted lines and solid teak construction provide durable functionality in a range of outdoor spaces. Fitted with a suspended seat in weather resistant Sunbrella fabric, it folds neatly away when not in use – and can be hung on the corresponding wall mount.
Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was one of the most important furniture designers of his generation. Having started as a cabinetmaker, like many other designers, he developed into an accomplished furniture designer who created functional and affordable furniture for the everyman. Mogensen studied at Copenhagen school of Arts and Crafts from 1936-1942 under the watchful eye of Kaare Klint as his mentor. After completing his studies he initially went on to work with Klint, from whom he learnt to produce simple and functional furniture. Later on, Mogensen also succeeded his former mentor as designer at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Copenhagen when Klint died in 1954.
