Imagery of Børge Mogensen’s House

Let’s all take a view of legendary Danish designer Borge Mogensen’s house which was built in 1968 as I think it’s a really inspiring space and quite the advertisement for timeless design. The imagery we find before us was taken for a charming and ever popular publication ‘Scandinavian Living’ with everything in the book being captured by English photographer Andrew Wood.
