Description

By Børge Mogensen , 1958 Børge Mogensen’s Library Table was saw its initial debut at the Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition in 1958. The pure lines and open construction are emblematic of his approach to designs driven by function. Where every detail has a precise purpose that correlates to its use. By raising and securing the hinged leaves at either end, the length of the table could be doubled. When not in use, the hinged leaves fold down to hang vertically. Resulting in a clean, rectangular profile of a practical, multi-purpose design crafted in oak. The concept was inspired by the English gateleg table dating back to the Baroque period. But it was Mogensen’s refined visual expression and elimination of anything unnecessary, which contributed to its iconic status. Modest in appearance and meticulously proportioned, the Library Table is perfectly suited for executive offices, conference rooms, libraries, law offices, galleries and private homes. Practical, durable designs to enrich people's everyday lives. That sums up the essence of Børge Mogensen’s overall intention with his work. Referring to wood as his preferred material, Mogensen designed an array of pieces noted for their sober expression and superb sense of proportion. Mogensen applied the same principles to his iconic series of tables, appreciated for their clean, uncluttered lines inspired by the functional, utilitarian approach of the Shaker movement. All our Mogensen tables reflect his ambition to create beautiful, distinctive furniture by emphasising simple horizontal and vertical lines and surfaces. A restrained aesthetic with a modest appearance intended to create a sense of tranquillity.
