Spanish Dining Chair

Designed for Fredericia in 1964, Mogensen drew early inspiration from traditional forms of craft he found while travelling in Spain. It was in Andalucia he observed an ornate chair with wide armrests, a style typically found in areas influenced by Ottoman and ancient Islamic cultures. Mogensen modernised the design by paring back the ornamentation while retaining the low, lateral shape.

 

The result is the Spanish Chair, one of the most cherished and admired of Mogensen’s creations. To honour and extend the original design, the Spanish Dining Chair is now available with a raised seat height to match the standards and settings of today.

 

The Spanish Dining Chair is a testament to the application of honest materials. Crafted from the finest selection of oak and flawless saddle leather, the chair is available with or without armrests, and with multiple finishes from light to darker shades, depending on the atmosphere you want to create.

 

The iconic expression of the Spanish Dining Chair enriches any setting, from grand to intimate, from residential homes to luxurious restaurants, and finally, it has character enough to stand-alone.

 

Made in Denmark.

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.
