Description

Oak
very good original condition
h 44 / w 180 / d 60 cm

Coffee table in solid oak and has an solid and carefully shaped base construction, typical for Danish Borge Mogensen. Surfaces and legs are in very good condition. Manufactured by Fredericia Stolefabrik. While simplicity, durability and comfort where most important to Mogensen he shared the aesthetical sensibilities of his most forward-looking colleagues like Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl and Arne Jacobsen. The spare geometries and lushly figured woods equal Mies van der Rohe and disciple Florence Knoll while later chairs display the same hefty construction and appreciation of natural materials seen in the work of Charlotte Perriand and Sergio Rodrigues.
