Spanish chair, 1958

Spanish chair by Børge Mogensen for Fredericia.

In 1958, Børge Mogensen and his family travelled to Spain. In Andalucia, he fell in love with an old chair with a wide seat and broad armrests. Once back in Denmark, he created the Spanish Chair.

The chair he fell in love with is a traditional type of chair and is very common in areas influenced by ancient Islamic culture – from Spain to northern India. Børge Mogensen modernised the design by removing the elaborate carvings, and thus he created his own version with his customary geometrical precision. Yet he retained the most important feature: the broad armrests that give the chair its distinctive character. The broad armrests also serve as a practical place to place a cup or a glass.

By designing the Spanish Chair Mogensen proved that he did not need to use steel or plastic to be innovative. Like the Hunting Chair, this classic chair is made of oak and butt leather. This gives it a strong, masculine character, and ensures that the chair ages beautifully.

The straps allow that the back can be tightened as the leather expands, which means that you can sit securely and comfortably in this chair from day one – and for the rest of your life.

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.
