Pakhus 48 frames permanent showrooms by Erik Jørgensen, VOLA and Kvadrat. The warehouse is part of a new design zone in an extensive urban development project in the Copenhagen free port area, initiated by CPH City & Port Development. 

The old warehouse has been gently renovated and all showrooms in Pakhus 48 have been individually decorated. It is fringed with a wide terrace from where the view of the harbour and the city can be enjoyed. 

Pakhus 48 is a dynamic focal point in a design zone that attracts Danish and international architects, customer and journalists, and offers an inspiring environment which is open for professional as well as private visitors.

Akira Minagawa for Kvadrat

Designed by Akira Minagawa

Kvadrat

 

The collection is characterized by refined patterns, detailed embroidery and sophisticated nuances. It brings together three upholstery textiles and a curtain.

As the collection reflects, Akira Minagawa often gets his inspiration by observing nature, life and society, and always starts his creative process by hand. He depicts scenes from nature through motifs that are reflected in textiles using a range of different techniques, such as embroidery, weaving and printing.

 

While the designs in the collection are part of the same family, each is distinctively individual. Some are more graphic; others have a more organic expression. They also feature different techniques, which range from the simple to the complex. All four designs are well-suited to contract environments and private spaces alike.

Savannah coffee table

Designed by Monica Fönster

Erik Jørgensen

 

In collaboration with Swedish designer Monica Förster, Erik Jørgensen has created a new coffee table that matches the iconic Savannah sofa.

 

The Savannah coffee table features the same solid wooden structure, high-quality joinery and supreme Danish craftsmanship as the Savannah sofa and armchair.

 

“This table is designed to harmonise with the entire collection, but it can also stand on its own. With its slender lines, it is also an extremely versatile table – making it ideal as a side table or in the hall as well,” explains Monica Förster.

 

The coffee table is available in a variety of wood finishes with a tabletop in either wood or granite, striking a distinct contrast to the popular marble trend of recent years.

 

The Savannah coffee table comes in 2 sizes.

Hector

Designed by Anderssen & Voll

Erik Jørgensen

 

Norwegian designers Anderssen & Voll have played with an archetypical Erik Jørgensen design, reinterpreting it in their Hector sofa.

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.

 

“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,” explains Torbjørn Anderssen, one half of the world renowned Norwegian design duo.

 

‘Hector’ is available as a two-seater and a three-seater in a wide range of fabrics.

Delphi Daybed

Designed by Studio Hannes Wettstein

Erik Jørgensen

 

Delphi is more than just a sofa. Delphi is a lifestyle and an aesthetic expression. It is a dynamic approach to the sofa as a flexible and long-lasting piece of furniture.

 

The many mobile modules and different seating depths facilitate numerous possibilities for an individual and unique sofa solution. With its classic and contemporary design and great seating comfort Delphi is offering both body ergonomics and sensuous aesthetics in order to meet the needs of the modern family. New to the Delphi range a Daybed has been launched, supplementing the other Delphi elements.

Mi Casa and Casita

Designed by Cristian Zuzunaga

Kvadrat

 

Mi Casa and Casita are two graceful curtains. Both combine glossy melange yarns and matte unicoloured yarns in a minimalistic panama binding. While they share these characteristics – and complement each other – they express colours in a distinctively individual way.

 

The blend of contrasting shiny and matte yarns gives the surfaces of the curtains an elegant, vibrant sparkle. Thanks to the use of melange yarns, Mi Casa and Casita reveal intricate details and pronounced colour depth.

 

When seen from close up, Mi Casa and Casita reveal a play of tiny squares. The way these emerge from the surface depends on the colourway in question: some have a pronounced graphic look, others seem to dissolve into the background and have a melange expression.

Molly 2

Designed by Åsa Pärson

Kvadrat

 

Naturally coloured Molly 2, an update of Molly, is an upholstery textile with a delicate and simple appearance. The idea behind Molly was to create a basic textile using the yarn as its starting point. The textile is made from Norwegian worsted yarn. Naturally coloured, it derives its appearance from the way the yarns are mixed.

 

The new colourways include cooler and lighter nuances of wool. These combine with the different bindings to give Molly 2 a variety of different expressions. Molly’s quality is not to be found in a colour palette or in uniform consistency but in the unobtrusive design of the fabric, the variations in the weave and the sensation of a genuine, natural product.

 

January 2015

Savannah
Designed by Monica Förster
Erik Jørgensen

 

The internationally renowned Swedish designer Monica Förster has joined forces with Erik Jørgensen to create Savannah - a sofa of uncompromising quality hand-constructed in choice natural materials at Erik Jørgensen’s furniture factory in Svendborg, Denmark. Savannah comprises a wooden structure wrapped with heavy saddleback leather, creating a beautiful framework for the sofa. In the corners, the wooden structure peeks through, revealing the superb craftsmanship that characterises Savannah.

 

Savannah is a high-backed sofa with excellent sitting comfort. It has inviting, hand-sewn seat cushions that you sink into, ensuring additional comfort for the back.

 

The sofa is the ultimate combination of Erik Jørgensen’s more than 60 years of proud handcrafted traditions and Monica Förster’s international vision.

Nanimarquina for Erik Jørgensen
Designed by Nanimarquina
Erik Jørgensen

 

Erik Jørgensen presents a collection of beautiful, handmade rugs in collaboration with the award-winning and Barcelona based Nanimarquina. In 2015 Nanimarquina received the prestigious design award ‘ELLE DECO International Design Awards’ (EDIDA) for the Rabari rug.

 

The collaboration of Erik Joergensen and Nanimarquina is based on creativity, quality, craftmanship and the use of exclusive materials. At the same time we share a passion for natural materials and a desire for innovative collaborations with interesting, international designers. We want to contribute to making it possible for the consumers to decorate their homes with challenging design and long-lasting quality.
