Børge Mogensen - Designs for life

The story of the man behind the design classics is also a piece of contemporary history about a Denmark in transition – and about quality that lasts.

Børge Mogensen's furniture is not just furniture. It is furniture as an artform with refined and timeless details that have provided Mogensen with an international following of dedicated admirers and collectors. The story of the man behind the design classics is the story of both the designer, the craftsman and the private person – and about a country which in the decades following World War II saw an unprecedented economic recovery reflected in its culture and lifestyle. Times change, but Børge Mogensen remains as one of the names that has secured the reputation of Scandinavian aesthetics, and continues to inspire. His life story is told by his son, Thomas Mogensen, who brings us close to the stories that have never been told before, and which add new facets of Børge Mogensen's life through unique access to the entirety of his extensive archive of pictures, drawings and – not least – furniture.
