Erik Wörts was one of the most prolific Danish furniture architects in the golden age of Danish furniture design, and by virtue of his long-standing collaboration with IKEA, he is perhaps also one of the furniture architects whose furniture is found in most homes around the world. He had a solid professional background as the son of a carpenter. He graduated from the School of Arts and Crafts. In the 1960s he was permanently affiliated with FDB’s Drawing Room.
The legs of the L601 sofa are made of solid oak. The leather is soft semianiline, which is surface treated and therefore resistant to stains.
