the Second World War when materials were scarce. Børge Mogensen's idea was that simple high quality furniture should be for available to everyone.
The showroom’s interior was designed as small sample apartments, so that customers could imagine how the furniture would look in their own homes.
The J49 was made with twisted sticks in beech - in line with the philosophy of supporting Danish crafts, and used local materials.
Materials of the full-scale J49 include a solid beech frame, available in original clear lacquer, or now in newly added, painted white or black. Originally manufactured by FDB in 1944; re-edition by Fredericia Furniture, Denmark in 2012. fredericia.com

In 1958, Børge Mogensen was travelling in Spain, and wherever he went he encountered the same type of wooden chair with broad armrests and a host of intricate carvings. The design sparked his creative passion, and when he returned to Denmark he designed his own, modernised version of the chair for Fredericia Furniture. miniature Spanish chair 
Mogensen modernised the shape, eliminating the elaborate carvings while retaining the important feature: the broad armrests that give the chair its character and provide a practical place Mogensen in the Spanish chair 
to put a glass or cup.
While he kept the frame in wood, he chose butt leather for the stretched seat and back.
And so the Spanish Chair was born – and introduced to the public for the first time at the joiners’ autumn exhibition in 1958. Materials of the Spanish chair include solid oak frame with leather seat and back, metal buckles.

Børge Mogensen (1914–1972) started his career as a cabinetmaker in 1934. In 1936 he went on to study at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts under Professor Kaare Klint before entering the Royal Academy of Fine Arts from where he graduated as an architect in 1942. miniature J39 chair 
In 1947, Børge Mogensen threw himself into “Operation Pin chair”. miniature J39 chair 
Operation's ambition was to create a dining chair, representing noble craft, high quality and simple aesthetics at a price that appealed to the masses. Operation’s biggest success was the chair of the merged seat - J39. With its single slat back, the J39 is obviously related to the low ladder backs that the American Shakers designed to fit neatly under their dining tables.
Materials of the full-scale J39 chair include solid untreated, soap-treated or lacquered beech or oak frame with a hand-woven seat in natural or black paper yarn. Manufactured by Frederica Stolefabrik from 1947 to present. www.fredericia.com

The obvious simplicity that characterises Børge Mogensen’s furniture did not just happen, but was the result of an uncompromising quest for the perfect solution. Børge Mogensen was always committed to his work of designing furniture, and the ideas, which came to him at all hours of the day and night, were scribbled down on matchboxes, napkins and scrunched-up envelopes. The result was an impressive breadth of work, but also that Børge Mogensen wore himself out completely, dying in 1972 aged only 58.
