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 1963.

Børge Mogensen (1914-1972) was one of the most important furniture designers of his generation. Having started as a cabinetmaker, like many other designers, he developed into an accomplished furniture designer who created functional and affordable furniture for the everyman. Mogensen studied at Copenhagen school of Arts and Crafts from 1936-1942 under the watchful eye of Kaare Klint as his mentor. After completing his studies he initially went on to work with Klint, from whom he learnt to produce simple and functional furniture. Later on, Mogensen also succeeded his former mentor as designer at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Copenhagen when Klint died in 1954.
