"My goal is to create items that serve people and give them the leading role, instead of forcing them to adapt to the items." -Borge Mogensen
The Mogensen 2208 2-seater club sofa features an elegantly curved lowered back. Mogensen designed the sofa in 1963 as part of a series containing an easy chair and 3-seater sofa.
Borge Mogensen was one of the pioneers that created the foundation for Danish Design as a culture of furniture design. His life-long ambition was to create durable and useful furniture that would enrich people's everyday lives, and he designed functional furniture for all parts of the home and society. He found inspiration all over the world in his quest to create everyday objects that would endure for generations. Mogensen's most recognized pieces were developed during his collaboration and friendship with Fredericia CEO Andreas Graversen. Mogensen's ideal was to create furniture with a restrained aesthetic. He believed that furniture should create a sense of tranquillity and have a modest appearance that encourages people to live their lives unpretentiously.
