Model 2031 - By Børge Mogensen


The Canvas Chair

The Canvas Chair is an enduring design, where material, shape and functionality is calibrated to equilibrium. Designed in 1970 by Børge Mogensen as one of his last pieces before his untimely passing in 1972, it is composed by clearly recognisable materials and shapes. Linen canvas is used for the seat and back suspended between conic pieces of solid oak – as the soft counterpart to an angular, almost constructivist base in solid oak.

Seat and back:


Black canvas

Smoked oak, olied, FSC Mix 70%

Tips for taking care of your Canvas Chair




Soap treated wood is a lot like untreated wood, characterized by the beautiful patina, which is created over time. As the years pass, the wood will become increasingly resilient to dirt as the surfaces turn ‘greasy’ from daily use and regular maintenance with soap flakes.
