BØRGE MOGENSEN REPLICAS



These chairs are replicas of Børge Mogensen's dining chairs BM62 and 63, which I built while attending College of the Redwoods. I was drawn to this design after seeing it in a scandinavian chair book and proceeded to recreate the pattern and shapes by scaling up photographs I found online. They are a classic danish midcentury modern design, with simple geometry and clean lines. Structurally, these chairs feature double bridle joints and through tenons, bent laminated backs and hand caned seats.
