Concept

Børge Mogensen had an ability to create honest, timeless designs true to Scandinavian simplicity. Among natural materials, he preferred solid wood for his products.

Mogensen showed his flair for craftsmanship whilst developing the wooden Shell Chair (1949). Although he is known for classic furniture design, he chose a more playful approach for the design of the Shell Chair. Its lively shape is a contrast to his previous clean-cut designs. However, the authentic feeling of simplicity, functionality and quality remained. Stellar Works incorporating this item into the Mogensen Collection is a tribute to the genius.
