The Dane Inspired By Spain


The ‘Spanish Chair’ is one of Børge Mogensen’s most famous works, combining inspiration from traditional Spanish pieces with the Danish love for simplicity and practicality in furniture design. Everyone should own a Spanish Chair!

Designed in 1958, the Spanish Chair was inspired by a traditional chair type that Børge Mogensen saw on a trip to Spain. Back at the drawing board in Denmark, Mogensen took the basic idea and stripped it of embellishments and upholstery to achieve this simple and graphical piece.

Constructed from oak with a natural stretched leather seat and back, comfort is definitely one of the key characteristics of the Spanish Chair. The clean lines and simple materials also combine to ensure that Mogensen’s Spanish Chair is a piece of furniture that has remained relevant to contemporary design and has easy to reproduce to keep up with the high demand for it throughout the last fifty years.
