"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

Mogensen designed this solid wood dining bench in 1956. With its robust simplicity the bench is an ideal example of Mogensen’s lifelong drive for a purified shape.

Borge Mogensen was one of the pioneers that created the foundation for Danish Design as a culture of furniture design. 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. He found inspiration all over the world in his quest to create everyday objects that would endure for generations. Mogensen's most recognized pieces were developed during his collaboration and friendship with Fredericia CEO Andreas Graversen. 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.

The Mogensen Bench features a solid wood frame offered in a variety of wood options. The seat is upholstered in your choice of either fabric or leather.
