60th Anniversary Spanish Chair
W: 830mm H: 680mm D: 600mm
The Spanish Chair 60 years special edition is available from 19 September, which is the exact day when the chair originally was presented to the world in 1958 as part of the yearly exhibition curated by Copenhagen Cabinetmakersâ€™ Guild. The Spanish Chair is Borge Mogensenâ€™s most recongnised design. A Scandinavian interpretation of furniture born from ancient Islamic culture, Mogensen drew inspiration from a trip to Spain in 1958 modernising traditional shapes he saw, while retaining important features like broad armrests. By designing The Spanish Chair Mogensen proved that he did not need to use steel or plastic to be innovative like many designers of the period. Strong and masculine in character, quality leather and oak ensure that the chair ages beautifully. Functional straps allow the back to 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.
