Børge Mogensen was one of the most important and influential representatives of Danish furniture design. For more than thirty years, he created a wealth of quality furniture, many pieces of which are sold as design classics to this day. Influenced by traditional craftsmanship, he was often inspired by Shaker furniture. He noted down all of his ideas immediately—whether on matchboxes, napkins, or used envelopes. This magnificent monograph examines Mogensen’s interesting approach to design and presents his most well-known and most popular pieces of furniture. Including workshop drawings, sketches, and photographs of his furniture, this richly illustrated monograph permits a unique insight into one of the most important representatives of Danish furniture design.
