The Canvas Chair exemplifies Borge Mogensen’s talent for functionally-driven designs with a focus on simple forms that capture the essence of an idea. With nothing to add or subtract. Drawing on his preference for natural materials, Mogensen used flat canvas as the seat and back suspended between round pieces of wood, together with his trademark use of horizontal and vertical lines for the frame. The result is contrast and a remarkable sense of balance.

The Canvas Chair exemplifies Borge Mogensen’s talent for functionally-driven designs with a focus on simple, structural forms that capture the essence of an idea. With nothing to add or subtract.

Drawing on his preference for natural materials, Mogensen used flat canvas as the seat and back suspended between round pieces of wood, together with his trademark use of horizontal and vertical lines for the frame. The result is contrast and an uncanny sense of balance.

Although it was designed in 1970 as a reaction to flashy furniture from the 1960s, The Canvas Chair takes on even more relevance today, given its earthy informality and honest materials. Boasting an unadorned authenticity which modern audiences find especially appealing.

Prime European oak and linen canvas are both available in black or natural coloured versions, with an optional loose seating cushion in canvas or leather.

One of the last pieces Mogensen designed before his untimely death in 1972, The Canvas Chair has remained in our archives ever since – until now. Whether in a hotel, lounge, retail space or private home, it’s a statement piece with a strong presence.
