Børge Mogensen’s BM0488 Table Bench from 1958 is relaunched by Carl Hansen & Son as part of a growing collection of the renowned Danish architect and designer’s work.
Versatile, timeless and carefully crafted, the BM0488 Table Bench was originally created to complement the BM0865 Daybed. The multi-functional piece forms part of Mogensen’s ‘building furniture’ concept – enduring furniture that could be added to and adapted over time in response to changing needs and living situations. Equally suited to use as a bench in an entrance hall or at the end of a bed, as a coffee table or side table in a dining or living room, the independent piece exudes wellbeing wherever it is placed. The BM0488 is crafted in solid oak, where the dense and flawless inner portion of the trunk known as heartwood is skillfully shaped with traditional cabinetry joints and rounded edges that repeat in the legs and rails. Topped with a double–woven surface, the durable and decorative design will look beautiful for generations to come.
