Design Borge Mogensen, 1971
Solid teak wood, stainless steel fittings
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & son

Referencing the simplicity of Shaker furniture, with clean lines and functional details, Børge Mogensen's foldable Outdoor Table was designed back in 1971.

Rediscovered by Carl Hansen & Søn, the iconic designer's outdoor table and bench set is reworked to modern sensibilities, yet remains true to the spirit of its original design. The series' bench is set on sturdy legs that tuck neatly inside the elegant slatted seat for easy storage when not in use. Optional cushion in weather resistant Sunbrella fabric enhances the sitting comfort.

Crafted in untreated FSC-certified teak, the durable design withstands wear and weather conditions to age gracefully over time, acquiring an elegant silver-grey hue. Seat cushion is only available in Heritage Papyrus 18006. Pair with the corresponding BM1771 table to create a set that neatly stows away when not in use.

67" w | 17.3" d | 17.3" h | base: 52" w | 12" d

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.
