Børge Mogensen's J39 chair in new colours
The J39 chair stands as one of the strongest manifestations of Børge Mogensen's unmatched ability to create timeless furniture that, with its natural materials and timeless expression, manages to stay current across times, generations and cultures. Now the iconic chair is being launched in new variants with inspiration from Mogensen's own life.
In 2022, the J39 could celebrate 75 years in continuous production, which testifies to the status and popularity the chair has achieved over the years. This spring, the classic woods oak, walnut and beech are now joined by two new colours and a varnish variant, while two more colours will be launched in the autumn. The new variants are painted with water-based lacquers on beech wood, which gives a nice, smooth surface and delicate downplayed colours that easily fit into any decor and impart an atmospheric colour story without taking over the room.
More colours will follow in September.
Inspired by Mogensen's country house in Lynderup
The new colours take inspiration from Mogensen's characterful country house and design studio in Lynderup, Northern Jutland, by the Limfjord. The house was completed in 1969, and with carefully curated materials and colour choices, in combination with the soft light, it has a completely unique atmosphere that emphasizes Mogensen's special aesthetic sense. Simple, warm, honest and complete down to the smallest detail. With buildings surrounded by wild and beautiful nature overlooking the fjord, Mogensen formed a space framed by wood, brick and clinker with an unpretentious interior in muted colours created for relaxation and contemplation.
