The BM5768 Footstool was designed in the late 1960s by Danish furniture designer Børge Mogensen as part of the Deck Chair Series of beautifully crafted outdoor furniture in solid, untreated, FSC®-certified teak. Perfectly proportioned to match the height of the series’ deck chair, the suspended seat of the foldable BM5768 Footstool is upholstered in weatherproof Sunbrella fabric, chosen for its natural look and easy cleaning. Can ideally be parred with BM1069 tray in solid Teak to create an inviting outdoor table.
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.
