Mogensen, Børge

(1914 - 1972)

Børge Mogesen was a Danish designer. Functional is the word which best describes his designs. The majority of his furniture was designed with industrial production in mind and is characterized by strong and simple lines. His true genius is to be found in his almost scientific analysis of the functionality of a piece of furniture.

During his years at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts the young Børge Mogensen developed a close partnership with his mentor Kaare Klint and subsequently also assumed Klint’s approach to simple and functional furniture design. After this, he entered the Royal Academy of Fine Arts from where he graduated as an architect in 1942. He became head of design at FDB in that year, before establishing his own design office in 1950.

Some of his notable pieces are the ‘Spokeback Sofa’ designed in 1945, the ‘Hunting chair’ from 1950 and the ‘Spanish Chair’ from 1959.

For nearly two decades, the collection of Bloomberry has been driven by the cultural reference between architecture, art and design.

The quality of our collection is reflected in the sophistication of craftsmanship and the character of the scars of time. Our restoration workshops are built around the same principal and work to the highest degree of craftsmanship.

Bloomberry is housed in a former textile factory and is located near Maastricht, in the south of The Netherlands. Within an hour of Antwerp and Cologne. Within two hours from Amsterdam and four hours from Paris.
