The Hunting Chair was Mogensen’s first work with exposed wood framing and saddle leather. The seat is adjustable with solid brass buckles, and the chair is easy to move around to different locations in the home. In 1950, the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild’s exhibition presented furniture under the theme ”A Hunting Lodge,” in which Mogensen had, for the first time, designed furniture using a solid wood framework with saddle leather forming the seat and back. This methodology was inspired by medieval Spanish furniture construction, something that Mogensen would return to time and time again. One of the more extraordinary pieces from Mogensen’s presentation was The Hunting Chair. The design reflected a distinct modernism of the time, with the front seat edge height just 30 cm above the floor.
