Chair with Saddle Leather and Wood
The Spanish Chair, as well as the Hunting Chair designed by Børge Mogensen for Fredericia. Both chairs are made from solid wood and leather. The exposed frame in solid wood and the seat as well as the backrest in leather, which can be adjusted with a buckle made of solid brass, is characteristic of the two rustic chairs.
The Hunting Chair by Fredericia was designed by Børge Mogensen in 1950 and is the designer’s first piece of furniture made of wood and saddle leather. The chair was produced specifically for an exhibition of the Copenhagen Cabinetmaker Guild to the motto "The Hunting Lodge". The extremely low-lying seat of the chair, which makes it back then as well as today the catcher, is particularly striking.
in 1958, during a trip through Spain, Mogensen was inspired by the traditional Spanish chairs to create a second chair made of leather and wood. The extra wide arms of the Spanish Armchairs serve as a shelf for glasses, cups or smaller items. This way, there is no need for another piece of furniture like a side table, in order to relax for hours in the chair.
The Spanish Chair and the Hunting Chair by Børge Mogensen for Fredericia are made from the best materials with utmost care and precision. The rustic and natural materials develop a unique patina that becomes by and by more beautiful.
