It has been almost seven decades since Borge Morgensen's Huntsman Chair was first presented at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Furniture Exhibition in 1950, the chair -which unites simplicity and complexity - is now being put into production at Carl Hansen & Son.
Borge Mogensen's designs are renowned for their subtlety, with an emphasis on strong structures and materials of the highest quality. The Huntsman Chair, which Mogensen designed for 1950's Copenhagen Cabinetmakers' Guild Exhibition in line with its “hunting cabin" theme, is no exception. The chair remained a showpiece until this year, when Carl Hansen & Son is adding it to their collection of furniture classics.
"It is natural to focus on this great design created by Mogensen in his golden era. The chair has a quality that makes it highly relevant to the Danish design narrative, and it also complements the elegant Hunting Table perfectly," says Carl Hansen & Son CEO Knud Erik Hansen. “Borge Mogensen's aim was to create people-centered design that would last for generations. The Huntsman Chair is a classic example of this."
