Concept

The famous Danish furniture architect Børge Mogensen created some of the most recognized classic furniture pieces during the Danish "Golden Age of design" in the 1950's and 1960's. In 1958, he designed the BM1 anD BM2 chairs together with the world-famous SHAKER TABLE in the distinctive Shaker Style, characterized by simple, pure lines and a light Nordic expression.

The BM1 chair is made of solid wood with a seat of hand-woven paper cordel, which has been treated with soap and wax to make it stay resistant. Each part of the chair is handmade, and by exploring the chair, you will discover many unique details. The round chair leg is made out of one single piece of wood, and the steam-bended back rest has a shape that follows the natural anatomy of the human spine.
