Erik Ole Jørgensen (1927-2002) was a Danish furniture designer who originally trained as a furniture upholsterer. The newly trained upholsterer discovered he had a keen sense for colour scales and colour combinations.
Years later he started training to become a furniture designer, and in 1948 graduated from the School of Arts and Crafts in Copenhagen. During his career, he designed both furniture and textiles. His simple, functional furniture ranks him among the best Danish furniture designers. One of his best-known designs is our spokeback sofa series, which was originally designed for FDB Møbler.
