Designed in 1971, Børge Mogensen’s functionalist approach is evident in this foldable table. With its folding function and angular frame, finished in untreated, FSC®-certified teak its perfect for the British summer as it can be folded and stored away when it gets a bit colder.
The design is characterised by its clarity and function to be admired for years to come. Set on a sturdy but elegant wooden frame, graphic slats create a durable and decorative tabletop perfect for outdoor gatherings. When not in use, it can be folded flat and stored away or hung on a wall as a decorative feature. The carefully crafted details are a nod to the designer’s background as a cabinetmaker and draw clear stylistic references to the American Shakers and 19th Century English furniture design. Partner it with the Carl Hansen BM1781 Dining Bench.
