The Spoke-back Sofa turns 75


On the occasion of the 75th anniversary, Fredericia Furniture is now relaunching the Spoke-back Sofa in the fabric Cotil.

The original and durable furniture fabric is produced in light shades in a beautiful and classic checkered pattern.

Cotil was designed initially in close collaboration between Børge Mogensen and the weaver Lis Ahlmann (1894-1979).

She developed an exceptional style of certainty and a unique sense to combine the aesthetic with the durable.

Her close collaboration with Børge Mogensen resulted in a versatile series of both checkered and solid-coloured furniture fabrics, which was named Cotil.

The anniversary edition of the Spoke-back Sofa is available from September 2020 – 75 years after the sofa was shown to the public for the first time at Cabinetmakers Guild Exhibition in 1945.

The Spoke-back Sofa is a hybrid between a classic sofa, English daybed and French chaise longue – and today a symbol of classic Danish design.
