Ideally utilised in a garden or outside space, the Carl Hansen & Son BM1771 Outdoor Dining Table was originally designed in the 1960s. Reintroduced in 2020, it is crafted in untreated, FSC®-certified teak and is exceptionally durable due to the strong wood and its naturally high oil content.
Patinating over time due to ever-changing weather conditions, its muted aesthetic eventually will acquire a more silvery hue, altering its striking appearance. Not only practical and versatile, but its innovative foldable design enables the user to store away or hang it on a wall mount as a decorative feature when not in use.
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.
