The J39 Mogensen Chair is a masterpiece crafted from solid wood, featuring a hand-woven seat in natural paper cord. Designed by Børge Mogensen in 1947, the clean lines and use of natural materials are all signature traits that contribute to the chair’s unwavering popularity.
Everything about the chair is in keeping with Mogensen’s vision to create high quality, functional furniture that could make modernism design popular for all walks of society. He used established cabinetmaker’s principles often found in traditional furniture from around the world. In this case, inspiration primarily came from the Shaker movement, captured in the chair’s basic silhouette and unadorned aesthetic.
