Design Borge Mogensen, 1950
Quarter-sawn solid oak, solid brass buckles, saddle leather
Made in Denmark by Fredericia

"My goal is to create items that serve people and give them the leading role, instead of forcing them to adapt to the items." -Borge Mogensen

In 1950, the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild's exhibition presented furniture under the theme "A Hunting Lodge", in which Mogensen had, for the first time, designed furniture using a solid wood framework with saddle leather forming the seat and back. This methodology was inspired from medieval Spanish furniture construction, something that Mogensen would return to time and time again.

One of the more extraordinary pieces from Mogensen's presentation was The Hunting Chair. The design reflected a distinct modernism of the time, with the front seat edge height just 30 cm above the floor.

The materials used for The Hunting Chair are of the finest selection and execution, from the quarter-sawn solid oak, to the vegetable tanned leathers and brass buckles. The rustic combination of materials develops a special patina that only becomes more stunning with time.

26.4" h | 27.75" w | 34.2" d | seat: 11" h | 19.8 lbs.
