The sofa that was the foundation for the box sofa
Designed by the first Jørgensen-generation
Erik Jørgensen was educated upholsterer and founded, in 1954, a small workshop, where his expertise in upholstering furniture was clear.
The foundation in our collection
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.
Aesthetic and simple
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 Jørgensen was founded in 1954 in Denmark. Through two generations, the company has created furniture with a focus on craftsmanship, natural materials and simple design. Today, Erik Jørgensen continue to manufacture several of the design classics that have come to be the cornerstones of the company – such as Hans J. Wegner’s iconic Ox chair, Poul M. Volther’s Corona, and Erik Jørgensen’s own masterpiece, the EJ 220 sofa.
