Borge Mogensen (1914-1972) was a 20th century Danish furniture designer who produced classical, simple, and functional furniture. Born in Aalborg, Denmark, he studied furniture design at College of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen from 1936 to 1938 followed by the Furniture School of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts from 1938 to 1941. In collaboration with Grethe Meyer, he produced a project called the Boligens Byggeskabe in 1954, which introduced the concept of building shelving and storage units as part of a room. His early designs combined new ideas with traditional forms that articulated a new combination of form and materials. By the 1950s, he re-embraced a more straightforward functionalist approach to his designs.
