Kaare Klint designed this upholstered sofa in 1940, at a time when Brge Mogensen was his employee and when his furniture designs were slightly changing from rigid classic designs to softer, more modern pieces. This piece, known as 'The Greek Sofa,' gets its name from the fabric used for the upholstery.
Inspired by an old ticking from Greece, Kaare Klint, working together with weaver Gerda Henning and dyer Einer Hansen, recreated the textile with black, red, blue and white stripes of different widths.
The fabric was initially hand-woven at Gerda Henning's workshop, and later by weaver and textile artist Lis Ahlmann.
Today, the fabric is machine-woven in a satin weave. The fabric was first used in 1932 to upholster the first Addition Sofa and two 'Red Chairs' for the New Carlsberg Foundation.
'The Greek Sofa' is available in mahogany and European cherry as either a two- or three-seater. The sofa is upholstered with the Greek-striped fabric or with fabric chosen by the customer, and finished with piping.
