The Audo Copenhagen Ingeborg Sofa was designed in 1940 by Flemming Lassen but never put into mass production. It is named after Flemming and Mogens Lassen’s mother, the artist Ingeborg Winding.
The designs were recently rediscovered in the archives and painstakingly recreated from original sketches. The design is now a much sought-after piece by modern design lovers. The armrests are a beautiful feature along with the sublime buttoned back.
Materials: Constructed with a plywood frame, the sofa’s seat is formed from layered foam in varying degrees of hardness and set on a base of belts. The legs are shaped from solid oak. Upholstered in Scandilock 17mm sheepskin (100% Australian Merino Sheepskin), Grand Mohair or Kvadrat Fiord fabric.
Dimensions: Height: 76cm x Width: 160cm x Depth: 76cm (Seat Height: 40cm)
Delivery Time: Around 12 weeks
Design Classic from 1940

Architect Flemming Lassen (1902-1984) was a modernist and part of the movement to bring functionalism to Denmark. He is particularly renowned for his overstuffed furniture, receiving major international recognition in the design world for his armchairs which today have become known as “the Flemming Lassen style”. Attended boarding school with Arne Jacobsen and his brother Mogens Lassen, the three of them maintained a close bond through childhood and later in life as colleagues. His iconic 'The Tired Man' armchair designed in 1935 holds the record as the most expensive chair ever sold in Denmark.
