The Canvas Chair

Regular price $4,340


The Canvas Chair is a sustainable 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.

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.

Lounge chair with a solid wood frame, and an interchangeable seat and back made in 100% linen canvas with a natural finish.

W74 x D65.5 x H74 cm. Seat height 37 cm.
