Spanish Dining Chair

$4,565.00

With its Danish accent on functionally driven design, durability and simple, declarative style, the Spanish Dining Chair is a modern classic.

It’s ironic that something called The Spanish Chair would become synonymous with Danish design. However, the origin of its name and its distinctive aesthetic render the chair worthy of its reputation.

Børge Mogensen drew much of his inspiration from traditional chairs of other cultures, such as English Windsor chairs and the Shaker movement in America. In Spain, a traditional way of making furniture involved the use of sturdy leather to construct the seat as part of a wooden structure – hence the name of what went on to become one of Mogensen's most celebrated designs.

Mogensen was an advocate of visual tranquillity, simple lines, strong construction and natural materials that bring an extra dimension of beauty and add to a design's longevity. Principles that supported his belief that good furniture should be enjoyed now and for generations to come.

The Spanish Dining Chair achieves all of that and more. With its Danish accent on function-driven design, durability and the simple, declarative style, it’s a modern classic that’s easy to envision in hotels, restaurants, homes and countless other upscale settings around the globe.
