J39 - The essential Børge Mogensen chair. Nicknamed “The People's Chair” for its incredible versatility and appeal for everyone in any environment. Designed in 1947.
It is believed that it was a surplus of wooden pins and dowels in the factory stores that led Børge Mogensen to design J39 in 1947. Perhaps that was a fortunate coincidence, as today it is one of Denmark's most sold wooden chairs, and has been in uninterrupted production ever since it was launched.
J39 is the obvious choice for everything from canteens to conference halls, churches to private homes, and is popularly known as the People's Chair.
