The BM1106 dining room chair is a chair in which aesthetics and sublime comfort are perfectly combined.Borge Mogensen designed this expressive addition to the Hunting Table for the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition in 1950 with 'hunting cabin' as the theme.
A new mode of expression
Børge Mogensen’s designs are renowned for their subtlety, with an emphasis on strong structures and materials of the highest quality. The Huntsman Chair, which Mogensen designed for 1950’s Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Exhibition in line with its ‘hunting cabin’ theme, is no exception. The chair remained a showpiece until this year, when Carl Hansen & Son is adding it to their collection of furniture classics.
The Huntsman Chair is characterised by a stringent, rational design that lets the materials speak for themselves. With his typical focus on optimising the function of furniture and his eye for detailed craftsmanship, Børge Mogensen has designed a chair that unites aesthetics and sublime comfort. From the chair’s soft, organic wooden frame, its angled legs, and its rounded embracing armrests to its classic mortise and tenon joints with contrasting wooden wedges, Mogensen’s training as a cabinet maker is in evidence. The mortise and tenon joints in particular, which add extra strength to the chair, demand the precision of a true craftsman.
The saddle leather used in the chair’s seat and backrest wraps around the wooden frame, held taut by buckles behind the back and under the seat – a characteristic design feature of Mogensen’s work that bears witness to his flair for the aesthetic. The saddle leather is carefully skived for a smooth transition between layers. The flexible top edge of the leather and the swiveling backrest, mounted on brass or stainless steel brackets, optimise sitting comfort and enable flexible sitting positions.
