Erik Jørgensen was educated upholsterer and founded, in 1954, a small workshop, where his expertise in upholstering furniture was clear.
During the 1970s, he designed the EJ 220, which later became one of the foundations in the collection at Erik Jørgensen Møbelfabrik, as well as becoming the archetype for the classic Danish box sofa. The sofa has become synonymous with good craft and classic Danish design.
The idea behind the design was that the sofa should have great comfort, while being aesthetically and simply in its expression. The sofa is available with and without buttons in the backseat, in the same leather or textile as the sofa or in another contrast color. It is also possible to vary the appearance in the form of different side pads, either via a cushion or further square pillows.
Erik Ole Jørgensen was a trained upholsterer. He had a real flair for the tactile qualities of textiles and furniture, and in the 1940s he worked for the legendary designer Kaare Klint for a number of years. Erik Ole Jørgensen’s style is simple and functional and positions him as one of the finest Danish furniture designers of his time. He took part in exhibitions all over the world and received several awards for his carefully designed furniture.
