Concept

In 1955, young interior architect Andreas Graversen acquired Fredericia Stolefabrik, and asked Børge Mogensen to design an entirely new collection of furniture for the company. One of the first results from this new venture was the 3236 chair, presented in 1955 and the 3171 bench, presented in 1956.

With an upholstered seat and a solid, yet simplified, construction, the 3236 chair is Mogensen’s continuation of the celebrated J39 chair from 1947. The robust dimensions in the spokes and legs compliment the upholstered seat, and reveals Mogensen’s ambition to reach as much visual harmony in the proportions of his furniture as possible.
