BM 0699 Asserbo Bench w/ Backrest

Designer: Borge Mogensen

A sterling example of people-first design, Børge Mogensen’s Asserbo Bench demonstrates the Danish designer’s approach to function and form. Perfectly proportioned, the solid, dark-oiled FSC™-certified eucalyptus seat has gently rounded edges and visible brushed brass screws. Available with a fixed or wall-mounted backrest, as well as cushions in leather or fabric, the customizable design has a warm and welcoming expression.  Informal and functional, the Asserbo Series was created by Børge Mogensen in 1961 to furnish his private holiday home. Part of Børge Mogensen’s Asserbo Series of Shaker-inspired furniture, created by the Danish designer in 1961 for his own holiday home, the Asserbo Backrest is made for the series’ bench. The rounded design in solid, dark-oiled FSC™-certified eucalyptus with visible brass screws attaches to a wall to provide back support when seated.
