As a shorter version of Borge Mogensen’s famous BM0488 Table Bench, the BM0488S has many similar design elements, including the characteristic woven seat, understated details, and precise craftsmanship. The same purity of design permeates the piece, expressing Mogensen’s passion for quality, affordable furniture.
The minimalist aesthetics are enhanced by the intricate weaving of the rattan seat, complimenting the oak’s beautiful grain. A timeless, multi-purpose design, the BM0488S can be used as a bench, coffee, or bedside table in the modern home.
Borge Mogensen (1914–1972) started his career as a cabinetmaker in 1934.
In 1936 he went on to study at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts under Professor Kaare Klint before entering the Royal Academy of Fine Arts from where he graduated as an architect in 1942. He became head of design at FDB (the Danish co-op) in 1942 before establishing his own design office in 1950.
