Anne-Mette Jensen and Morten Ernst have designed the In Duplo sofa series for the Danish furniture manufacturer Erik Jørgensen. In Duplo is a series that consist of two sofas in kinship (In Duplo High & Low) that are designed with a common theme. Each sofa consists of a wing shaped corpus that holds a composition of cushions. Like in a stone circle where each element is modified and finds its natural bearing. In Duplo comes across as a semiotic sign and with a strong graphic and organic expression that lead the thoughts back to the new modernism in Danish Furniture Design in the early 1950’s. In Duplo High and Low both have a dynamic gable expression and calm straight facades. The legs, made of powder coated aluminium, look like limber bridges under the organic body.
