Mogensen's iconic Spanish Chair was his masterful, truly Scandinavian interpretation of a traditional form of chair often found in areas influenced by ancient Islamic culture, from Andalusia to northern India. Mogensen drew inspiration from a trip to Spain in 1958. He re-imagined and modernised the shape, eliminating the elaborate carvings while retaining the chair's most important feature: the broad armrests, giving the chair character and providing a practical place to put a glass, cup or bowl. The combination of oak and butt leather gives a strong, rustic, sturdy appearance to this spacious, comfortable chair.
