The Contour Chair by Børge Mogensen embodies a sculptural, organic and distinctive design vision. The remarkable lounge chair was designed in 1949 and reintroduced by Carl Hansen & Søn in 2019.
Designed in 1949 by Børge Mogensen, the expressive Contour Chair is a visually stunning example of the design language of the Danish creator. With a backrest in form-pressed veneer, the chair embodies the exciting new material of the time, which allowed for new forms and expressions. Presenting an impressive figure, the Contour Chair provides a sculptural element to any room.
The lounge chair is created with a frame in solid wood and with angled legs and a curved, backward-sloping seat. The chair gets its distinctive look from the innovative veneer backrest: A shell with two organically shaped cut-outs. The frame features signature Børge Mogensen details such as the mortise and tenon joints with contrasting wooden wedges.
Mogensen’s remarkable chair presents itself as an organic piece of furniture and as the lightness in form and materials merges with comfort and flexibility, it tells a story of technique, materials and craftsmanship. As such, the Contour Chair embodies design for the modern day.
