53 Sofa 1953

During the 1950’s, Juhl designed a series of furniture for the furniture manufacturer Bovirkewith a more streamlined, industrial style, which was easily recognisable by its slender, almost invisible legs in stained steel and their use of wood and colour with Finn Juhl’s trademark sense of detail.

About the 53 Sofa

The 53 Sofa is a very “tight” sofa with generous springiness in the otherwise firmly upholstered seat. The back cushions are loose and the fabric has hand-upholstered wool fabric to order. 

Juhl himself used this sofa in his showroom apartment in the Bellahøj high-rise building complex as well as in many of the thirty- three SAS terminals he designed between 1957 and 1961.
