Børge Mogensen wasn’t interested in sculptural shapes and experiments. He preferred historical furniture types that he then tweaked for the better. A very readable monograph presents the Danish designer.
Karl Andersson & Söner have been making Øresund since 1955. The series comprises cabinets with sliding doors in wood and glass, a chest of drawers, a bookcase and a table in veneered blockboard. The wood is oak with a lacquered finish. The chairs are also
made of oak, lacquered, oiled or stained black, and have seats in seagrass, fabric or leather. Øresund is at home in a wide variety of domestic and office settings, from classic to functional style or ultra-modern.
