Fredericia’s fringy renewal


Henrik Vibskov with his unique edition of “The fringy Edition “-sofa.

Design furniture manufacturer Fredericia Furniture has teamed up with one of the most spectacular names in the Danish design and fashion world, designer Henrik Vibskov.

Henrik Vibskov belongs to the top of the Scandinavian fashion industry. His style, though, is not Scandinavian traditional minimalist sense. On the contrary, his clothing collections are known for an eclectic mix of patterns, colors, densities and volumes.

The new cooperation involves furniture designer Børge Mogensen’s classic No.1 sofa from 1955, which was the very first sofa he designed for Fredericia. With a very few means, Vibskov has rethought the upholstery and admissibility of No. 1’s tight design, so that it simultaneously refers to Vibskov’s own universe and the classical style, which is synonymous with Børge Mogensen. Thus, Fredericia and Vibskov together have created a new and compelling narrative that transcends the border between time and tradition.

Henrik Vibskov calls his reinterpretation “The fringy Edition”. He has asked furniture fabric producers Gabriel and Kvadrat to provide the specific fabrics for the unique version of the sofa, which is hand-sewn by Vibskov and his team at his workshop in Copenhagen.

In addition to the unique version, Vibskov has also color schemed a number of commercial variations of “The fringy Edition”,  which Fredericia puts into production as a limited edition in 2015. Thus, the entire No. 1 collection, which consists of a 3- and 2-seater sofa and an armchair, will be available in Henrik Vibskov’s specially edited version.

“The fringy Edition” premiered in late May in Copenhagen. Afterwards, it will be displayed in selected design furniture shops in Scandinavia and Europe.
