The home of Børge Mogensen

, , , , By Catherine

BoBedre had the opportunity to visit the home that inspired Børge Mogensen, a great contributor of what we now call the golden age of Danish design in the 1950s and 1960s.

In 1958, Mogensen and his family moved in to this house in Soløsevej, north of Copenhagen. While Børge Mogensen died in 1972, his spirit was still well and alive inside this home. Things were kept as they were 40 years ago.

Discovering this house is like walking through a design museum. It is filled with Mogensen’s old prototypes and first samples of his now famous furniture, as well as pieces from family friends; artist Svend Wii Hansen, and designers Poul Henningsen and Kaare Klint, among others.

    He is the ultimate designer, and i love every bit of his design. I was wery sad to see his home not became a real museum so we all could enjoy the fine and delicate design that he put in to evry corner of his furniture. his dessign will never be forgotten and wil never be overrouled.
