Simply beautiful: the elaborately crafted monograph on the Danish furniture designer
Borge Mogensen (1914-72) opened his own design office in 1950, quickly becoming one of the designers that defined the Danish Modern style in the popular imagination with his clean and highly functional aesthetic. He eschewed fashion and excessively expensive materials, aiming first and foremost to create simple and practical furniture. He put this philosophy into practice in his design work for the Danish cooperative supermarket chain FDB, which offered high-quality, beautifully designed furniture to the Danish customer at affordable prices.
[Borge Mogensen] was a restless thinker who took pages of notes on current and prospective designs, all of which are included in this visual piece, featuring photographs of his furniture, workshop drawings, and other projects.--Hinali Shah And Merilyn Chang "Metropolis "
