2226 THE SPANISH CHAIR WALNUT OIL FINISH, SEAT AND BACK IN SADDLE BLACK LEATHER
SIZE: W82.5 x D60 x H67 CM, SH33 CM
DESIGNER: BØRGE MOGENSEN, 1958 DENMARK
In addition to oak, the Spanish Chair by Børge Mogensen is now available in American walnut.
With the Spanish Chair Mogensen expanded upon his work with solid oak and saddle leather. The chair was launched in 1958 as part of an innovative living space exhibition, in which all tables were removed from the floor to create an open living space.
Børge Mogensen drew much of his inspiration from traditional chairs of other cultures, such as English Windsor chairs and the Shaker movement in America. In Spain, a traditional way of making furniture involved the use of sturdy leather to construct the seat as part of a wooden structure – hence the name of what went on to become one of Mogensen's most celebrated designs.
Mogensen was an advocate of visual tranquillity, simple lines, strong construction and natural materials that bring an extra dimension of beauty and add to a design's longevity. Principles that supported his belief that good furniture should be enjoyed now and for generations to come.
