List of products by designer Borge Mogensen

(1914—1972)

Børge Mogensen was one of the most important Danish Modern furniture designers among his generation. His designs are simple, classical and highly functional. Mogensen started as a cabinetmaker in 1934 and later studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. He worked with Kaare Klint and continued his studies to develop domestic items that are customized for specific uses. Mogensen introduced the idea of building shelving units as part of a room, rather than buying and placing them in there. Mogensen was awarded many medals for his designs and his work has been featured in international exhibitions. Well-known furniture include: The Spokeback Sofa (1945).
