Søborg


An extremely contemporary design, the Søborg chair bridges the contrast between industrial and handcrafted solutions, along with the textural properties of solid wood, plywood and steel. All compounded with a lightweight and solidly grounded aesthetic. 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.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. Fredericia ‘s Søborg chair has a visual expression that is less industrial and more crafted.
