Set of Eight Model #156 Chairs by Børge Mogensen
A rare set of eight Model #156 dining chairs designed by Børge Mogensen and made by Søborg Møbelfabrik in 1952. The seat and back rests of the chairs are teak plywood whilst the frames of the chairs are in oak. True to one of the main tenets of Mogensen’s practise the Model #156 design achieves through its humble proportions and shapes a feeling of serenity. The beautifully contrasting teak and oak used throughout the design has been shaped in quite a number of different ways but almost instantaneously the user observes the differing elements as a result of considerations towards them and how a person wants to use the chair. Larger sets of vintage dining chairs are rare due to previous owners often having to split them between family members when passing them on. Furniture can always be grouped but the specifics of where and how a piece has been used relates directly to its appearance. This set of chairs have always been together and thus enjoy the same golden patina and age-related wear. Each chair is structurally perfect and ready to use in an uncomplicated manor as desire by Mogensen over 60 years ago.
