1940 - 1960

In 1955, visionary businessman Andreas Graversen integrated Fredericia's heritage of high-quality furniture with modernist ideals in a close, well-known collaboration with Børge Mogensen. Mogensen's intuitive understanding of materials and strong sense of proportions led to a range of iconic pieces celebrated to this day - by collectors, museums, architects and designers around the world.

Ever since the untimely death of Mogensen in 1972, Fredericia has continuously evolved by staying in tune with the times.
