The hunting table by Børge Mogensen


In 1950, the theme for the Cabinetmakers’ Autumn Exhibition was the “Hunting lodge”.

In this occassion, Børge Mogensen designed the hunting table, consisting of oblique trestle legs.

The table top is in veneer with rounded corners and edges in solid wood.

The table legs are assembled with tappers and with wedges in contrast tree.

Two cross bars mounted between the frame and the table top make the table stable.

The refined robustness was referred to as “designed art” by a reviewer.

The table is now added to Carl Hansen & Son’s collection of furniture classics.

The BM1160 is made of oak and walnut and in a combination with different surfaces.

The table cross bars are available in either stainless steel or brass.

The table is 72 cm tall and the tabletop measures 210 x 81.5 cm.
