Hunting chair, 1950

Hunting chair by Børge Mogensen for Fredericia

The theme of the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild’s autumn exhibition in 1950 was "the Hunting Lodge”. Børge Mogensen used this as an opportunity to create one of his more extraordinary pieces of furniture. Like several of his classics, the idea was conceived late at night in the company of good friends – and in this case on a matchbox.

The Hunting Chair’s rounded armrests, seat, and back that adjust to the body’s weight make it a very comfortable chair. Despite the front seat edge height of just 30 cm above the floor, the armrests make the chair easy to get up from.

The frame is made of oak, while the seat and back are of butt leather, with adjustable straps. This rustic and masculine combination of materials, which give a very special patina, was further developed by Mogensen in other pieces such as The Spanish Chair. The Hunting Chair is a sculpture that only becomes even more stunning with time.

The Hunting chair is manufactured by Fredericia.

Fredericia was first established as the Fredericia Stolefabrik (Fredericia Chair Factory) in 1911 and specialised in antique style furniture.

In 1955 the languishing company was acquired by Andreas Graversen who scrapped the existing product line and created a new one with the help of young architect, Børge Mogensen.

The company was taken over by Graversen's son, Thomas Graversen, in 1995. He led the company into the new century with a more fluid approach to design and production. Together with designers like Nanna Ditzel, he created a number of internationally recognised furniture pieces while at the same time continuing to produce the best of Mogensen's designs.
