Lynderup chair by Børge Mogensen for Fredericia

Dezeen Showroom: Fredericia has released a previously unproduced chair by modernist Danish designer Børge Mogensen that is named Lynderup after the site of his beloved farm.

The Lynderup chair was designed by Mogensen in 1954 and existed only in sketches before Frederica decided to make the design a reality this year.

It features a tubular metal frame and a plywood seat that takes up the full width of the chair, making it both comfortable and flexible.

The Lynderup chair is stackable and comes with either black or chromed legs. Its seat and backrest are made from FSC-certified wood and the whole product has been awarded the EU Ecolabel.

The chair's light and minimal construction was experimental for the time of its design in the early 1950s, when Mogensen was exploring new ideas inspired by international design movements.

He regularly worked with Fredericia before his death in 1972 but this marks the first time that the Danish brand is putting the Lynderup chair into production.

The design takes its name from the location of Mogensen's farm on the Jutland peninsula in northwestern Denmark.

The designer bought the property in the 1960s, restoring and extending the farmhouse to make an ideal space for relaxation and contemplation.

According to Fredericia, this same focus is mirrored in the design of the Lynderup chair.

"Exactly as Mogensen adapted the incoming daylight in his house in Lynderup, the curvature of the seat and back obtains light and forms an organic light and shadow play," the brand explained.
