The 'Baker Sofa' originally Finn Juhl designed this sofa for Baker Furniture Inc. in USA in 1951

The Danish manufacturer onecollection recently re-edited one of the most famous classics of Finn Juhl – the Baker Sofa.

The 'Baker Sofa' reedited by onecollection

Originally Finn Juhl designed this sofa for Baker Furniture Inc. in USA in 1951.

The sculptural forms are inspired by the modern free art, which interested Finn Juhl very much. The sofa has an upholstered body divided in two, resting upon an elegant and light construction of wood – a typical example of how Finn Juhl separated the elements in order to create a visual lightness.

The sofa is upholstered in wool fabric, of customer’s choice and in two colors if wanted, delivered in walnut or teak.

The ‘Wall Sofa’, designed in 1950 for The Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum in Trondheim, where Finn Juhl was asked to decorated a room with modern interior design. The hanging frame is made of lacquered steel and is mounted to a wall.

The sofa has been produced in more lengths and is used in several of Finn Juhl’s famous interior designs and it is with its asymmetric look, probably the best example of how he was inspired by the modern free art.
