The Spanish Chair Special Edition09.07.2018
The Spanish Chair celebrates its 60th anniversary – designed by Børge Mogensen in 1958 and manufactured by Fredericia ever since – uncompromising craftsmanship and materials converge in this masterpiece.
On occasion of the 60th anniversary of the iconic chair, Fredericia launches a special edition in solid Oak combined with an elegant Olive Green saddle leather. To honour Børge Mogensen’s work, Fredericia searched the master’s archive and discovered this subtle, natural colour, which was one of his most loved hues and one of the dominating interior colours at the time.
Now, and for the first time ever, the Spanish Chair is available in this modern mid-century colour marking 60 years of impeccable craftsmanship and cutting edge design.
To celebrate this special anniversary, Fredericia invited Børge Mogensen’s grandson, renowned fashion photographer Rasmus Mogensen, to portrait himself with the masterpiece created by his granddad in 1958.
Rasmus Mogensen on the Spanish Chair:
“Børge Mogensen’s perfectionist obsession with a simple overall look, the fine details, the perfectly conceived angles etc. both drove and exhausted him. Just then I felt a special bond with Børge, even a kind of curse. This deep-felt need for absolute simplicity and an idea of creating something perfect.”
The Spanish Chair 60 years special edition is available from the 19th of September, 2018 which is the exact day when the chair originally was presented to the world in 1958 as part of the yearly exhibition curated by Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild. Only available until the 31st of December 2018.
