Back in 1945, the post-war optimism of WW2 ushered in new opportunities for designers to re-envision a fresh future. Denmark had already established itself as a platform for rising stars to showcase their ideas, with the annual exhibition by the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild. Mogensen and Wegner joined forces increating their idea of “A Home for the Future”. They transformed their stand into a living room, where Mogensen presented a hybrid of a daybed and a chaise longue, with a hinged side. While the Spoke-Back Sofa was acclaimed for its innovative approach, it was considered too sophisticated for post-war tastes. It wasn’t until 1963 that the sofa was put into industrial production. Exemplifying Mogensen's idea of a multi-purpose sofa.
