The Danish design company &tradition introduces a new sofa designed by the world famous designer and architect Arne Jacobsen for Søllerød City Hall in 1939. The sofa is one of his early designs and has never been produced before.
“We at &tradition are very proud to introduce the Mayor sofa. It tells the story of Arne Jacobsen’s earlier and lesser known designs. Mayor shows a younger Arne Jacobsen, who even then was constantly evolving and experimenting with his designs,” says Brand manager for &tradition Martin Kornbek Hansen.
The sofa stands out from the furniture Arne Jacobsen is known for today. While The Egg and The Swan show an Arne Jacobsen who had found his well-known style inspired by international modernism, Mayor features a unique style that draws as much upon the Danish traditions of fine woods and functional solutions as on the international modernism for which Arne Jacobsen is famous. With the introduction of Mayor, &tradition contributes to telling this largely untold story of Arne Jacobsen.
