Special Edition 1958-2018
Designed by Børge Mogensen in 1958 and manufactured by Fredericia ever since – uncompromising craftsmanship and materials converge in this masterpiece.
On occasion of the 60th anniversary of the iconic Spanish Chair, Fredericia launches a special edition in solid oak combined with an
elegant Olive Green saddle leather. To honour Børge Mogensen’s work, Fredericia searched the master’s archive and discovered this subtle, natural colour, which was one of his most loved hues and one of the dominating interior colours at the time. Now, and for the first time ever, the Spanish Chair is available in this modern mid-century colour marking 60 years of impeccable craftsmanship and cutting edge design. To celebrate this special anniversary, Fredericia invited Børge Mogensen’s grandson, renowned fashion photographer Rasmus Mogensen, to portrait himself with the masterpiece created by his granddad in 1958.
Rasmus Mogensen on the Spanish Chair:
“Børge Mogensen’s perfectionist obsession with a simple overall look, the fine details, the perfectly conceived angles etc. both drove and exhausted him. Just then I felt a special bond with Børge, even a kind of curse. This deep-felt need for absolute simplicity and an idea of creating something perfect.” – Rasmus Mogensen
