The sofa was exhibited for the very first time in the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen during 1957. However, it took more than 40 years before this extravagant design was appreciated by the general public.

About the 57 sofa

The 57 Sofa was the first Finn Juhl design that we relaunched. Finn Juhl’s widow, the music- and theatre publisher Hanne Wilhelm Hansen, wanted this sofa to be part of an exhibition marking the 10th anniversary of Finn Juhl’s passing. Therefore, she contacted us and commissioned a single issue of the sofa based on his drawings. This became the beginning of an amazing partnership with Hanne Wilhelm Hansen, who subsequently handed us the exclusive rights to manufacture Finn Juhl’s furniture.

The 57 Sofa is manufactured with handsewn upholstery in fabric or leather and with springs in the seat. The legs come in burnished or stainless steel with wooden toes.
