The iconic J39 chair was designed for Fredericia by Mogensen in 1947. The chair, characterised by its a curved backrest and hand- woven paper cord seat, became hugely popular and earned the nickname the “People’s Chair”.
The chair’s appeal can be attributed to its simple design, reminiscent of American Shaker furniture, and its versatility. Whilst it is a comfortable dining chair, it is also suitable for use in a wide range of settings, both domestic and commercial and where mass seating is required, as in a conference hall or church. The frame can be oak or beech with either a painted or natural finish; and the seat is either black or natural paper yarn. Minimum order quantity of two chairs.

Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was one of the most influential designers in shaping Danish Modern design and present day Fredericia’s founding designer from 1955 until his death in 1972. He found inspiration all over the world in his quest to create everyday objects that would endure for generations.
Børge Mogensen was one of the pioneers that created the foundation for the Danish Design as a culture of furniture design. His life-long ambition was to create durable and useful furniture that would enrich people’s everyday lives, and he designed functional furniture for all parts of the home and society.
Fredericia began as a humble Danish design house, born of a proud heritage. A heritage of unfaltering dedication to the perfection and progression of the design craft. Fredericia work with some of the world’s greatest designers & architects.
