That longevity has endured thus far. That savoir-faire has shaped products that embody the purity, simplicity and timeless appeal of the Scandinavian look. In a balanced mix of classic and contemporary, resulting in furnishing and accessories that cater to every sort and kind of interior solution. Fredericia, as the company is now known, does not just stand out for its tremendous manufacturing skill, but also for its contribution to what has become modern Danish furnishing. In 1955, Børge Mogensen, one of the fathers of Danish design, was invited to head up the design department, redefining the visual language of the products with his ethical approach, a perfect balance of durable quality, rational production, natural materials and human empathy. 1955 marked the launch of the first sofa signed by Mogensen, Model 201, which was re-edited under the name No. 1 Sofa in 2014 to celebrate the centenary of its designer’s birth and remains a best-seller, as is 2213, designed in 1962 for his own home and the cornerstone of the Select Collection, a must-have in directors’ offices and homes belonging to a certain social class. The professional and creative partnership between Graversen and Mogensen, which subsequently became a close friendship, was rewarded in 1971 with the Danish Furniture Prize.
