Presented for the first time in 1958, Bǎrge Mogensen’s BM0865 Daybed has been relaunched by Carl Hansen & Son as part of an ever richer collection of pieces by the renowned Danish architect and designer. It is an example of Mogensen’s “construction furniture”: durable furniture to add and adapt over time in response to the changing needs and situations of life. This philosophy is evident in its ability to be the protagonist, alone or in a group as part of larger installations. It can be used as a cot, sofa, bed or chaise-longue depending on how many elements are grouped together. Its evident versatility makes it ideal for both the living room and bedroom, while its comfortable form is perfect for well-being in any space.
Here’s how Knud Erik Hansen, CEO of Carl Hansen & Son, describes it: “The Mogensen Daybed is an incredible example of the architect’s free-ranging philosophy and his perception of the optimal furniture for relaxing. Its lines, classic, rounded and linear, adapt perfectly to the Carl Hansen & Son collections. I have no doubt that the Daybed will become a favorite place to sit and chat – it could even lead to a friendly fight to gain the best seats!”
Made of oak, the Daybed has refined and elegant details which, together with its sturdy construction, a tribute to the magnificence of the oak trees from which it is made, are typical elements of Mogensen’s craftsmanship and careful detailing.
