Meet the designer

Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was one of the most influential designers shaping Modern Danish design and Fredericia’s founding designer. He found inspiration worldwide in his quest to create everyday objects that would endure for generations, believing that furniture should create a sense of tranquillity and a modest appearance. He was acclaimed for his masterful sense of materials and proportions, creating designs celebrated and showcased in leading design museums worldwide.

Creating The Spanish Chair

Andalucia was the backdrop of inspiration for The Spanish Chair. While travelling through Spain, Mogensen observed an ornate chair with wide armrests, a traditional style involving Spain’s medieval furniture construction. Mogensen modernised the design and expanded upon his work with solid oak and saddle leather. The result is the essence of an idea expressed in a look that’s timeless in appeal – and original.

Simple steps to make your Spanish Chair last for generations




Daily cleaning
Wipe with a clean, dry cloth. We do not recommend using wet cloths on oiled surfaces if this can be avoided. For stains that cannot be removed with a dry cloth, use a soft cloth dampened with clean water and wrung out.

Oiled wood surfaces must be maintained regularly with the application of a thin layer of oil.

Product Impact

Heritage handcraft
