2015 – The Norwegian design duo, Anderssen & Voll, has reinterpreted a classic Erik Jørgensen design. The sofa features a clean-lined and minimalist outer shell built up around a more comfortable interior. It has clear references to several recognisable and time-honoured features from Erik Jørgensen’s more than 60-year history. It’s a classic Erik Jørgensen sofa with a contemporary look. In collaboration with Erik Jørgensen, Anderssen & Voll set out to create a sofa that expresses the soul of Erik Jørgensen’s furniture. It has Erik Jørgensen’s classic composition and it is designed with an eye to comfort. With its soft cushions and high back, the sofa is made for relaxing, and it has the more clean-cut lines that fit well in the modern Scandinavian home.Read More
