The BM1106 dining chair is a chair in which aesthetics and sublime comfort are perfectly united.
Borge Mogensen designed this expressive addition to the Hunting Table for the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition
in 1950 with 'hunting cabin' as the theme.
New way of expression
With its refined strength, the Huntsman Chair became representative of Danish furniture design and the era known today
stands as Danish Modern, because of the simple shapes and natural materials. The chair was originally made of smoked oak wood
and saddle leather – two of Børge Mogensen's favorite materials.
Saddle leather was a new material in Mogensen's career at the time. It has left its mark and led to a more robust
appearance of his designs. Mogensen's training as a furniture maker with Kaare Klint, the great master of Danish furniture design,
is evident from the soft, organic wooden frame, the angled legs and the rounded enveloping armrests, combined with
classic mortise and tenon joints with contrasting wooden wedges.
In particular, the mortise and tenon joints, which make the chair extra strong, require the precision of a true craftsman.
The saddle leather of the seat and backrest is wrapped around the wooden frame and is tensioned by buckles on the back of the backrest and
under the seat. This is a characteristic design feature of Mogensen, attesting to his flair for aesthetics.
The saddle leather has been carefully planed for a smooth transition between layers.
The flexible upper edge of the leather and the rotatable backrest, mounted on brass or stainless steel brackets, optimize seating comfort
and allow different sitting positions.
The solid wood Hunting Chair comes in oak or walnut with stainless steel or brass hooks and buckles. The finish of the wood is in
oil, lacquer or white oil (oak only).
The seat and back are made of sturdy but supple saddle leather in the colors natural, cognac or black.
The wedge in the mortise and tenon joint in the legs is always in contrasting wood (oak or walnut).

Carl Hansen & Son re-released the Huntsman Chair by Børge Mogensen to complement the Hunting Table. The table was set a year earlier
presented in the context of adding Mogensen to the extensive designer portfolio of Carl Hansen & Søn.
The robust elegance of the Huntsman Chair, which co-defined Mogensen's signature style, fits in a variety of interiors.
For the matching table, look at the BM1160 Hunting Table.
