Design by Børge Mogensen
In 1958, Mogensen once again used solid wood and saddle leather to create the Spanish Chair for Fredericia. On a journey through Spain, Mogensen had noticed a traditional type of chair with wide armrests, common in areas influenced by ancient Islamic culture. Mogensen combined this notion with his earlier works and signature functionalism. The wooden construction of the Spanish Chair is formed with geometrical precision, achieving a sturdy design with exceptional durability and enduring character. Back home in Denmark, Mogensen presented the Spanish Chair at the Copenhagen Cabinet-makers Guild’s Exhibition. The broad armrests serve as a practical place to place a glass or ashtray, allowing the user to dispense with occasional tables or other furniture from the surrounding area. In doing so he achieved a more open and informal space for relaxing and conversing.
The materials used for The Spanish Chair and Hunting Chair are of the finest selection and execution, from the quarter-sawn solid oak, to the vegetable tanned leathers and brass buckles. The rustic combination of materials develops a special patina that only becomes more stunning with time.
Made in Denmark
In honour of the 50th anniversary of the chair, however, Fredericia Furniture has designed a special anniversary edition, of which only 500 numbered pieces will be made. The anniversary edition of the chair still features an oak frame, but its seat and backrest are in dark brown nubuck leather – a new material that not only improves the appearance of the chair, but also makes it softer and more comfortable to sit in.
