Design Borge Mogensen, 1968
Solid teak wood, stainless steel fittings, fabric
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & son

In the late 1960s, Danish furniture designer Børge Mogensen conceived his Deck Chair Series of outdoor furniture, which included the BM5768 footstool. The footstool's simple, solid teak construction is perfectly proportioned to match the height of the series' deck chair while providing a classic, durable and functional element for outdoor spaces.

Reissued by Carl Hansen & Søn, the purposeful design helps to bring people and nature together in thoughtful and inspiring ways. The straightforward silhouette in solid, untreated and FSC-certified teak features carefully considered details that include gently rounded ends and identically spaced rivets. Originally conceived for Mogensen's private balcony, the series folds flat when not in use and can be neatly hung on the series' corresponding wall mount as a decorative, architectural object in its own right.

The BM5768 footstool features untreated FSC-certified teak. The durable design withstands wear and weather conditions to age gracefully over time, acquiring an elegant silver-grey hue. It is upholstered in weatherproof Sunbrella fabric, chosen for its natural look and easy cleaning. The fabric is only offered in Heritage papyrus 18006 color.

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.
