BM57 sideboard, Børge Mogensen, P. Lauritsen & Søn, 1957.
The aesthetic of Danish designer and architect Børge Mogensen, trained by professor Kaare Klint, is inspired by the Scandinavian cabinetmaker tradition, reinterpreted with clean and functional shapes. The modernity of his works makes them to collector’s items, whose value continues to increase, but also to very practical pieces of furniture for an everyday use.
The BM57 sideboard was designed in 1957 and belongs to the collectible models of the Danish designer. The exemplar available here is a first edition P. Lauritsen & Søn in teak, in original unrestored condition. The brass inlays enhance the sober aesthetics of the sideboard.
Many seats, including the Spanish BM22 collections, and several tables are still manufactured by Fredericia, with whom Mogensen has long collaborated, but the BM57 sideboard is no longer in production
Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was a very productive designer during the 50’s and the 60’s, together with Finn Juhl, Hans J. Wegner and Arne Jacobsen he helped define and popularize the Danish Modern style.
