Originally designed in 1958, Carl Hansen & Søn puts Børge Mogensen’s modular Shelving System into production for the very first time. Minimalist and modular, the tubular steel FSC™-certified wood design is also available in a range of colorful finishes to bring personality to spaces. A fusion of aesthetics, function and craftsmanship, it profiles all the hallmarks of great, lasting design.
Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was one of the most important furniture designers of his generation. Having started as a cabinetmaker, like many other designers, he developed into an accomplished furniture designer who created functional and affordable furniture for the everyman. Mogensen studied at Copenhagen school of Arts and Crafts from 1936-1942 under the watchful eye of Kaare Klint as his mentor. After completing his studies he initially went on to work with Klint, from whom he learnt to produce simple and functional furniture. Later on, Mogensen also succeeded his former mentor as designer at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Copenhagen when Klint died in 1954.
