Description

The Canvas Chair

The Canvas Chair is a sustainable design, where material, shape and functionality is calibrated to equilibrium. Designed in 1970 by Børge Mogensen as one of his last pieces before his untimely passing in 1972, it is composed by clearly recognisable materials and shapes. Linen canvas is used for the seat and back suspended between conic pieces of solid oak – as the soft counterpart to an angular, almost constructivist base in solid oak.

Meet the designer

Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was one of the most influential designers shaping Modern Danish design and Fredericia’s founding designer. He found inspiration worldwide in his quest to create everyday objects that would endure for generations, believing that furniture should create a sense of tranquillity and a modest appearance. He was acclaimed for his masterful sense of materials and proportions, creating designs celebrated and showcased in leading design museums worldwide.

Tips for taking care of your Canvas Chair

Soap treated wood is a lot like untreated wood, characterized by the beautiful patina, which is created over time. As the years pass, the wood will become increasingly resilient to dirt as the surfaces turn ‘greasy’ from daily use and regular maintenance with soap flakes.

Product impact

At Fredericia, we strive to continue our heritage of purposeful and sustainable design, creating modern originals that encourage human well-being wherever people live, work or relax.

Foam-free comfort

The canvas used for this chair offers a comfortable seat, as a plastic-free alternative to polyurethane foams.
