A/S Søborg Møbelfabrik was founded in 1890 and has constantly manufactured high quality furniture in great Danish design. They have a long tradition of cooperation with famous Danish architects and designers in the development of the company`s standard products. Some of them, amongst others, are Børge Mogensen, Christian Hvidt, Flemming Hvidt and Mogens Lassen. Through the 1950s and 1960s the company worked with Danish furniture designers to experiment with, manufacture and display furniture at the annual exhibitions of Copenhagen Guild of Joiners- exhibitions that laid the foundations for the fairytale of Danish furniture and the internationally recognized concept of Danish Design. This tradition of exhibitions is continued through all the years. A/S Søborg Møbelfabrik is still active today, and produce mainly office furniture and classic items designed by e.g. Børge Mogensen, Christian Hvidt, Kai Lyngfeldt Larsen and Mogens Lassen.
Mogensen was one of the most important among a generation of furniture designers who made the concept of “Danish design” known throughout the world. Together with colleagues such as Arne Jacobsen and Hans Wegner, Mogensen created international respect for Danish furniture design, and his simple and functional designs have for more than half a century enjoyed worldwide demand. He trained at the School of Arts and crafts and at the Furniture School of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts (1936-42). Between 1942 and 1950, he was head of FDB´s furniture design studio, but left to found his own design studio in 1950.
