The expressive Contour Chair is a visually stunning example of the design language of the Danish creator. With a backrest in form-pressed veneer, the chair embodies the exciting new material of the time, which allowed for new forms and expressions. Presenting an impressive figure, the Contour Chair provides a stunningly sculptural element to any room.

The lounge chair is created with a frame in solid wood and with angled legs and a curved, backward-sloping seat. The chair gets its distinctive look from the innovative veneer backrest: a shell with two organically shaped cut-outs. The frame features signature Børge Mogensen details such as the mortise and tenon joints with contrasting wooden wedges.
