The BM0488S Table Bench is a shorter version of Borge Mogensen’s famous bench with the characteristic woven seat, understated details and precise craftsmanship. With its more modest dimensions, the table bench can easily be combined with the longer BM0488 Table Bench, but it also serves as an independent piece of furniture which can be used as a bench in the entrance hall, as a side table in the living room or as a bedside table
Borge Mogensen’s BM0488S Table Bench from 1958 is relaunched by Carl Hansen & Son as part of a growing collection of the renowned Danish architect and designer’s work.
Versatile, timeless and carefully crafted, the BM0488S Table Bench was originally created to complement the BM0865 Daybed. The multi-functional piece forms part of Mogensen’s ‘building furniture’ concept – enduring furniture that could be added to and adapted over time in response to changing needs and living situations. Equally suited to use as a bench in an entrance hall or at the end of a bed as it is as a coffee table or side table, the independent piece exudes wellbeing wherever it is placed. The BM0488 is crafted in solid oak, where the dense and flawless inner portion of the trunks known as heartwood is skilfully shaped with traditional cabinetry joints and rounded edges that repeat in the legs and rails. Topped with a double–woven surface, the durable and decorative design will look beautiful for generations to come.
