Børge Mogensen 1914–1972

One of the most productive and influential Danish designers of the mid-20th century, Børge Mogensen became best known for his functional designs. His work is characterized by simple lines, modest proportions, and clarity of design. His high quality craftsmanship remains approachable and attainable. He began his training as a cabinetmaker in 1934 then studied at the Danish School of Arts and Crafts before enrolling at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ School of Architecture where he graduated in 1941. Mogensen was a student and teaching assistant of Kaare Klint later working in the designer’s studio in Copenhagen. In 1948, he participated in the Museum of Modern Art, New York’s Low-Cost Furniture exhibition with friend, Hans J. Wegner and frequently exhibited his furniture designs at the Copenhagen Cabinetmaker’s Guild Exhibitions as well.
