Description

Børge Mogensen designed this 3-seater 2213 sofa originally for his own home in 1962. The sofa has been upholstered in black, vegetable-tanned aniline leather with a breathable, open-pored texture.

Fredericia’s Select Collection consists of sofas and armchairs characterized by simple but noble shapes and luxurious materials. Besides private residencies, they are seen in embassies, minister’s cabinets and upscale hotels around the world. Mogensen found the inspiration for the collection from Porter’s chairs and sofas designed by Kaarle Klint in 1920s. The whole range is crafted and upholstered by hand at Fredericia’s own factory in Denmark.

Børge Mogensen

Danish furniture designer Børge Mogensen (1914 –1972) was one of the most influential designers of the Danish modern. Mogensen studied furniture design at Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and his designs aimed at functionality, minimalist appearance and easy accessibility. Soon after his graduation Mogensen was named the chief of Danish Consumers’ Co-operative Society FDB, which focused on producing functional, durable and affordable furniture for all social classes.

Mogensen’s designs were often extremely modest and confident at the same time, and the same goes for his personality. Mogensen preferred to work with traditional and natural materials, but also liked to experiment with new techniques and supported the industrial production of furniture. His work was also influenced by folk art, lithography and Japanese wood carvings. During his career Mogensen was awarded with the Eckersberg Medal and C.F. Hansen Medal, and in 1972 he was named Honorary Royal Designer for Industry by the British Royal Society of Arts.
