Carl Hansen
BM0949 Contour Chair


Designed by Borge Mogensen
Manufactured by Carl Hansen & Son

Børge Mogensen’s Contour Chair has been re-introduced 70 years after it first launched at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild Furniture Exhibition in 1949.

The classic chair embodies Mogensen’s organic design language, the rounded backrest and curved, backward sloping seat offering comfort and flexibility. The chair features numerous recognisable traits of the designer, including mortise and tenon joints in contrasting wood.

The design was a significant departure from Mogensen’s usual preference for solid wood, the use of form-pressed veneer illustrated the possibilities of new materials and technologies.

The Contour’s lightness in form and distinct silhouette provides a stand-out sculptural element to any space.

The chair is available in oak or walnut with an oiled finish. A mixed wood version is also available, with oak frame and walnut veneer seat and back.

The Contour chair can be upholstered in a variety of fabrics and leather. Please enquire for further details.
