The Spoke-Back Sofa

Designed by Børge Mogensen - Fredericia

Functional is the word which best describes Børge Mogensen’s design. The majority of his furniture was designed with industrial production in mind and is characterized by strong and simple lines. His true genius is to be found in his almost scientific analysis of the functionality of a piece of furniture. During his years at the Copenhagen School of Arts and Crafts the young Børge Mogensen developed a close partnership with his mentor Kaare Klint and subsequently also assumed Klint’s approach to simple and functional furniture design. Later on Børge Mogensen was to work as Klint’s teaching assistant at the Royal Academy.

Description

Mogensen designed the sofa in 1945 as a daybed and chaise longue hybrid, with a hinged side. The exposed construction was too sophisticated for modest post-war culture and the sofa did not go into production until 1962.
