In 1948, Børge Mogensen participated in MoMA’s ”low-cost furniture” international design competition together with his friend Hans J. Wegner. With homes in Denmark serving as the inspiration for the exhibition, he conducted his first experiments with plywood shells.
Mogensen exhibited the first prototype for the Søborg Chair in 1950. His intention was to make a shell chair that could be produced with new machineries of the time. The rounded shaped seat and back in moulded plywood combined with a solid wood frame, reflected how Mogensen fused his international contact with traditional cabinet-makers’ solutions and his own functionalist design identity.
In 1952, Mogensen expanded the series with a steel framed chair. Working with steel was exception, rather than rule, in Mogensen’s work ethic, but the execution was typical of Mogensen. Adding details such as the slightly tapered legs, Mogensen successfully demonstrated the use of woodworking methodologies in steel, which means the Søborg chair has a visual expression that is less industrial and more crafted.
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.
