Powder-coated steel, wood veneer, MDF
Made in Denmark by Carl Hansen & Son

Originally designed in 1958, Carl Hansen & Son puts Borge Mogensen's modular Shelving System into production for the very first time. Minimalist and modular, the tubular steel FSC™-certified wood design is also available in a range of colorful finishes to bring personality to spaces. A fusion of aesthetics, function and craftsmanship, it profiles all the hallmarks of great, lasting design.

Crafted to exacting standards from tubular steel and oak or walnut, the modular 'building furniture' system in a range of muted colors can be configured in multiple ways. Part of Borge Mogensen's 'building furniture' concept of timeless designs that adapt to changing needs and spaces, the flexible shelving system optimizes both floor space and display areas, providing shelving and cupboards for both show and storage. Infusing every interior with storytelling, heritage and craftsmanship of the highest caliber, the BM0253 Shelving System comprises tubular steel upright supports and FSC-certified (FSC C135991) wooden shelves and cupboards, also offered in a range of colorful finishes.

Borge Mogensen's creative process produced long-lasting pieces with humans at the center. He became a highly-influential, post-war designer and a leading representative of Danish Modern.

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.
