A Sculptural Vision

Designed in 1949 by Børge Mogensen, the expressive Contour Chair is a visually stunning example of the design language of the Danish creator. With a backrest in form-pressed veneer, the chair embodies the exciting new material of the time, which allowed for new forms and expressions. Presenting an impressive figure, the Contour Chair provides a sculptural element to any room. The lounge chair is created with a frame in solid wood and with angled legs and a curved, backward-sloping seat. The chair gets its distinctive look from the innovative veneer backrest: A shell with two organically shaped cut-outs. The frame features signature Børge Mogensen details such as the mortise and tenon joints with contrasting wooden wedges. Mogensen’s remarkable chair presents itself as an organic piece of furniture and as the lightness in form and materials merges with comfort and flexibility, it tells a story of technique, materials and craftsmanship. As such, the Contour Chair embodies design for the modern day.

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.
