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

In 1958, Børge Mogensen and his family traveled to Spain. For the hardworking designer, the trip became more than just a holiday. In Andalucia, he fell in love with an old chair with a wide seat and broad armrests. Once back in Denmark, he created The Spanish Chair.

The chair he fell in love with is a traditional type of chair and is very common in areas influenced by ancient Islamic culture – from Spain to northern India. Børge Mogensen modernised the design by removing the elaborate carvings, and thus he created his own version with his customary geometrical precision. Yet he retained the most important feature: the broad armrests that give the chair its distinctive character. The broad armrests also serve as a practical place to place a cup or a glass.

By designing The Spanish Chair Mogensen proved that he did not need to use steel or plastic to be innovative. Like The Hunting Chair, it is made of oak and butt leather. This gives it a strong, masculine character, and ensures that the chair ages beautifully. The straps allow that the back can be tightened as the leather expands, which means that you can sit securely and comfortably in this chair from day one – and for the rest of your life.

The clearance Spanish chair is available in smoked oiled oak frame with black leather seat.
