This item is a one-off clearance item to be sold on a first order, first served basis.

It is believed that it was a surplus of wooden pins and dowels in the factory stores that led Børge Mogensen to design the J39 chair in 1947. Perhaps that was a fortunate coincidence, as today it is one of Denmark’s most sold wooden chairs, and has been in uninterrupted production ever since it was launched.

J39 is the obvious choice for everything from canteens to conference halls, churches to private homes, and is popularly known as the People’s Chair. Mogensen’s mentor, Kaare Klint, as well as American Shaker furniture inspired this simple, yet unique chair.

The curved backrest and hand-woven seat make the J39 a comfortable dining chair with an aesthetically pleasing quality. The subtle design language means that it can be added to an existing interior, or serve as a room’s visual hub.

The J39 is available in oil treated oak. The seat is corded with a natural paper yarn.
