The 46 is available in the following configuration: 2 seater sofa.
With regards to materials, this designer sofa is available in fabric or leather upholstery.
As the name implies, this sofa was made in 1946 and manufactured by the upholsterer Carl Brørup’s workshop in Copenhagen.
As a young person, Finn Juhl had a dream of becoming an art historian. During the 1930’s and 1940’s he had been strongly influenced by modern art, which was the main reason why his designs had organic forms with almost human features. He worked from the core outwards in the same way as surrealist artists, and was inspired by the freedom from convention reflected in art.
Similar to the Pelican Chair, the 46 Sofa is also a “body for the body”. Only this “body” can accommodate two people who become one organic unit. Juhl’s artistic license was heavily criticised at the time as some critics scornfully called his furniture “tired walruses”.
Seen by today’s eyes, the 46 Sofa is a charming and cosy addition to any interior style – classic as well as modern. The sofa is masterly built, consisting of a solid wooden frame with springs in the seat and entirely hand-sewn upholstery. It is available in both fabric and leather with teak, oak or walnut legs.Read More
