(b. Aalborg 1914, d. Gentofte 1972)
“Kupé”. A free-standing two-seater sofa with walnut legs, upholstered with cognac coloured leather. Model 2192. Designed 1971. Manufactured by Fredericia Stolefabrik, 1976. L. 154 cm.
An elegant high-backed leather sofa designed in 1971. Mogensen wanted to design a sofa for peaceful relaxation in front of the fireplace. He was inspired by the distinctive lines of the British “hall porter's chair” - a classic wing-style chair specially designed to capture heat from the open fireplaces typical of the cold housing of the past. In Danish, the popular term for this model is a “compartment sofa” because it fits snugly round its occupant like the comfortable seats in a first-class train compartment. The sofa is available in two- and three-seater versions as well as a double two-seater version that seats four people.
