In 1955, young interior architect Andreas Graversen acquired Fredericia Stolefabrik, and asked Børge Mogensen to design an entirely new collection of furniture for the company. This solid wood dining table was designed by Mogensen in 1956. With its robust simplicity the bench is an ideal example of Mogensen’s lifelong drive for a purified shape.
The series is made with the finest selection of oak that has a very fine structure. This results in a harmonious surface over the table, which can be described as both raw and refined.The table comes with a light soap treatment that allows the texture of the wood to endure and will only become more beautiful through everyday use.
The warm and comfortable atmosphere created by the dining collection has made this furniture series equally popular in restaurants and private homes.

Børge MogensenDENMARK (1914-1972)
Børge Mogensen designed some of the most renowned furniture pieces of the 1950s and 1960s. An exceptionally productive man, Mogensen’s collection of designs numbers into the thousands. New ideas came to him at any time of the day or night, and were scribbled down on matchboxes, table napkins, creased envelopes, or whatever was at hand. His lifelong mission was to create simple and practical furniture.
Appearance was important, but never at the expense of functionality. He disapproved of colleagues who succumbed to the whims of fashion, ignored functionality or used excessively expensive materials. In the same breath, he defiantly brushed off any criticism for only using wood, his preferred material in all its different embodiments. One of Mogensen’s most iconic pieces is the Spanish Chair, an interpretation of a traditional type of chair often found in areas influenced by ancient Islamic culture – from Andalusia to northern India.Learn More
