The Soeborg chair comes in several variants.
In 1953, the famous Danish furniture designer Børge Mogensen created the Soeborg Chair, as an organic dining chair in moulded plywood. The chair was adapted to the most advanced production methods of the 1950s. With its choice of materials, the chair differs considerably from most of Mogensen’s furniture. Nevertheless, the Soeborg chair proves relationship to the classic Shaker-style furniture with its simple lines and quality workmanship, and thanks to its high seating comfort, the chair also fulfills modern requirements.
On the occasion of Børge Mogensen’s 100th anniversary, Fredericia Furniture has decided to relaunch the Soeborg Chair in a completely unaltered version. The chair is available in several color combinations: oak, black, gray or white.
