Design Borge Mogensen, 1950
Solid wood, stainless steel or brass, saddle leather
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

Seven decades after it was designed, Carl Hansen & Son reintroduces a modern classic with a stringent and rational expression: the Huntsman Chair by Borge Mogensen.

Presented by Borge Mogensen at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Furniture Exhibition in 1950, the Huntsman Chair unites two distinct design expressions: simplicity and complexity. As the chair helped define Mogensen's style, it emphasizes his remarkable importance for the international success of Danish Modern and makes for a natural reintroduction by Carl Hansen & Son.

The chair presents a rugged elegance and a stringent, rational design, which lets the natural and enticing materials speak for themselves. Originally created with inspiration from the modern hunting lodge, the tactile materials fit perfectly with a present-day aesthetic, underlining the timeless qualities of Mogensen's vision.
Furthermore, the attention to detail is a testament to the designers' training as a cabinet maker. The organic wooden frame is embraced by the sturdy quality of saddle leather. Held taut by buckles and carefully skived for a smooth transition between layers, the result is a remarkable design. The height of the chair and the flexibility of the buckled saddle leather make the Huntsman Chair ideal as a dining chair as well as a lounge chair.

With its angled legs, rounded armrests and the swiveling backrest, mounted on brass or stainless steel brackets, the Huntsman Chair is a comfortable and flexible design that will last for decades.

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.
A workshop in Odense, Denmark in 1908, was the birthplace of the Carl Hansen company. With a fast reputation for quality work, Carl Hansen confidently took on large projects like dining room sets and bedroom suites. However, Hansen eventually learned to capitalize on scaled-back versions of his popular sellers, realizing that their strongest asset was its hand craftsmanship and rationality. Carl Hansen invited Hans Wegner to create designs in 1949, launching a mutually beneficial relationship bringing success to the company and exposure to the young Wegner. Wegner was still relatively unknown, but soon gained wide acclaim that continues to today.
