About this item

This Danish sofa has a sophisticated mid century modern look to it and was likely to have been manufactured in the 1960s. It’s difficult to say for sure whether this model was designed by Borge Mogensen but it certainly has many of his design cues.

Børge Mogensen studied furniture design at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts under esteemed Professor Kaare Klint from 1936–38. Next, he studied at the School of Furniture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts from 1938–41, where he also served as Klint’s teaching assistant. In 1942, Mogensen became head of design at the Danish Consumers Coöperative Society (FDB). He opened his own design office in 1950, and was one of a handful of designers who helped define and popularize the “Danish Modern” design style. Mogensen’s aesthetic was clean and highly functional. He was driven to create affordable, practical designs. Clients included Fredericia Stolefabrik, Fritz Hansen, and Søborg Møbelfabrik, among others. He was honored with the Eckersberg Medal in 1950, the annual prize from the Copenhagen Carpentry Guild in 1953, and the C.F. Hansen Medal in 1972.

All items of this age will show some signs of use commensurate with their age. The leather shows some age appropriate wear but this this item remains in nice condition. Please ask if you'd like any further detail re condition.
