The Canvas Chair by Borge Mogensen for Fredericia.

The Canvas Chair was designed in 1970 by Børge Mogensen as a reaction to flamboyant furniture of the 1960s. Its pared back design and use of natural materials is an elegant example of form following function, with nothing to add or subtract.

It's balanced form encapsulates Mogensen's predilection for honest, organic materials, its flat canvas seat and back suspended from rounded wooden bars that sit within his trademark horizontal and vertically structured frame.

The prime European oak is available with a soap, oiled or black lacquered finish. Acompany with a choice of a natural or black canvas seat.

Optional loose seating cushions are also available in canvas or leather.
