The Wing Chair forms part of the family of sofas and armchairs that originated in the design of Mogensen's own sofa for his home. The now iconic range of leather armchairs and sofas began production in 1962. The diversity of forms and sizes was born out of a thoughtful process of understanding user needs and their environments, with sofas and armchairs in various widths and back heights.
The Wing Chair was designed in 1963 and was inspired by historical furniture that encouraged intimacy and provided high levels of comfort. The high-back, winged form has classical references, though the design is restrained and modest. Mogensen aimed to make unpretentious and timeless designs.
The Wing Chair embraces all the high-specification features of the range. Meticulously detailed and made, the Wing Chair is the epitome of Danish design and craftsmanship.
Mogensen trained under Kaare Klint at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts. The principle of simple and functional design echos in his prolific output over an influential career. Seen as one of the most important furniture designers of the twentieth century, much of his work continues to be produced.
