Comment : Designed in 1950, The Hunting Chair was Mogensen's first work with exposed wooden framing and saddle leather. The seat is adjustable with solid brass buckles, and the chair is easy to move around to different locations in the home. In 1950, the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild’s exhibition presented furniture under the theme ”A Hunting Lodge”, in which Mogensen had, for the first time, designed furniture using a solid wood framework with saddle leather forming the seat and back. This methodology was inspired from medieval Spanish furniture construction, something that Mogensen would return to time and time again. One of the more extraordinary pieces from Mogensen’s presentation was The Hunting Chair. The design reflected a distinct modernism of the time, with the front seat edge height just 30 cm above the floor. The materials used for The Hunting Chair are of the finest selection and execution, from the quarter-sawn solid oak, to the vegetable tanned leathers and brass buckles. The rustic combination of materials develops a special patina that only becomes more stunning with time.
