Søborg steel base chair by Børge Mogensen for Fredericia.

The Søborg chair was designed by Børge Mogensen in 1950 as a functional and elegant plywood shell chair that could be efficiently produced using contemporary machining technology.

In 1952 Mogensen adapted his design to include a steel frame option, bringing his characteristic finesse and craft to a material he did not commonly employ.
