Soborg Table

Børge Mogensen designed the Søborg Table in 1953. The table’s sleek elegance is enhanced by slightly tapered steel legs and a sharply defined contour in the oak table top. Søborg Table is a statement table that can be used in the home as well as in restaurants, hotels and exhibition spaces.

 

A true functionalist, Mogensen believed that furniture should encourage freedom of personality. With its discrete design, sturdy construction and generous width, the Søborg Chair expresses this perfectly in any environment… at home, in restaurants, in working areas or any socially engaging space.

Børge Mogensen

DENMARK (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.
