The Spanish Chair is Borge Mogensen’s most recognised 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 other 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.
