Borge Mogensen was born in 1914 in Aalborg, Danemark.
Mogensen was a prolific furniture designer, exhibiting almost every year at the Copenhagen Cabinetmaker’s Guild Exhibitions. He was also the Head of Furniture Design during the 1940s for the Danish Cooperative Wholesale Society. His furniture, strongly representative of his training as a traditional craftsman, was greatly appreciated by a public who had not yet become interested in modernism and the changes its influence had created on furniture and the decorative arts.
He died in 1972 in his homeland, Danemark.
