bm1160 hunting table

Design Borge Mogensen, 1950
Wood veneer, solid wood base/legs, stainless steel or brass
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

Børge Mogensen designed the BM1160 Hunting Table for the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Furniture Exhibition in 1950. The name refers to the "Hunting Cabin" theme of the Guild's exhibition, a detail which is also reflected in the table's robustness and wood-focused design. The table combines excellent woodwork with elegant metal brace bars, creating a bold and organic whole.

Mogensen's Hunting Table is slightly narrow across the top, which makes it suitable for smaller spaces, while allowing for more intimate social gatherings. Furthermore, the table is constructed for frequent use with rounded corners and edges in solid wood, which reveals Mogensen's passion for democratic and accessible design.

The stability is ensured through the use of two diagonal brace metal bars connecting the tabletop and frame with an aesthetically pleasing effect. Further detailing, such as the mortise and tenon joints on the legs manufactured in contrasting wood, accentuate the table's handcrafted expression.

The wedge in the legs always comes in contrasting wood (oak or walnut). The oak/walnut is a mixed variant with oak legs and walnut tabletop.

Borge Mogensen

Borge Mogensen (1914-1972) was one of the pioneers that created the foundation for the Danish Design as a culture of furniture design. He was one of the most influential designers in shaping Danish Modern design and present day Fredericia's founding designer from 1955 until his death in 1972. His life-long ambition was to create durable and useful furniture that would enrich people's everyday lives, and he designed functional furniture for all parts of the home and society. Mogensen's ideal was to create furniture with a restrained aesthetic. He believed that furniture should create a sense of tranquillity and have a modest appearance that encourages people to live their lives unpretentiously.
Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949 and launched a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to Hans Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today as a Master of Danish Modern Design.
