6271 BM71 LIBRARY TABLE IN OAK OIL
SIZE: L126/189/252 X W93 X H72CM
DESIGNER: BØRGE MOGENSEN, 1958 DENMARK
The pure lines and open construction are emblematic of Mogensen's approach to designs driven by function. Where every detail has a precise purpose that correlates to its use. By raising and securing the hinged leaves at either end, the length of the table could be doubled. When not in use, the hinged leaves fold down to hang vertically. Resulting in a clean, rectangular profile of a practical, multi-purpose design crafted in oak. The concept was inspired by the English gateleg table dating back to the Baroque period. But it was Mogensen’s refined visual expression and elimination of anything unnecessary, which contributed to its iconic status.
Mogensen applied the same principles to his iconic series of tables, appreciated for their clean, uncluttered lines inspired by the functional, utilitarian approach of the Shaker movement.
