The Norwegian design duo, Anderssen & Voll, has reinterpreted a classic Erik Jørgensen design in a new sofa to be introduced at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair.
Norwegian designers, Anderssen & Voll have played with an archetypical Erik Jørgensen design, reinterpreting it in their HECTOR sofa, to be introduced by Erik Jørgensen A/S at the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair on 9-13 February 2016.
The sofa features a clean-lined and minimalist outer shell built up around a more comfortable interior. It has clear references to several recognisable and time-honoured elements from Erik Jørgensen’s more than 60-year history.
“It’s a classic Erik Jørgensen sofa with a contemporary look. In collaboration with Erik Jørgensen, we set out to create a sofa that expresses the soul of Erik Jørgensen’s furniture. At the same time, the sofa is also very clearly an exponent for Anderssen & Voll,” explains Torbjørn Anderssen, one half of the world renowned Norwegian design duo.
Anderssen & Voll only had their début as designers for Erik Jørgensen, two years ago. At the time, it was with the minimalist BOW sofa.
‘Hector’ is a completely different style of sofa. It has Erik Jørgensen’s classic composition and is designed with an eye to comfort. With its soft cushions and high back, the sofa is created for relaxing. But it also has the more clean-cut lines that fit well in the modern Scandinavian home,” says Torbjørn Anderssen, adding:
“Comfort and great design are not necessarily incompatible. Furniture for sitting should be shaped to the proportions of the body, with the challenge being to combine aesthetics and distinctiveness with comfort – and I think we’ve done this quite well here,” he concludes.
‘Hector’ is available as a two-seater and a three-seater in a wide range of fabrics.
