With regards to materials, this designer sofa is available in fabric upholstery.
Edgar Kaufmann Jr., a prolific art collector and then director of the Design Department at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, introduced Finn Juhl to the American design world. During a trip to Denmark, he became so fascinated by Juhl’s artistic take on furniture design that he invited him to the United States.
In 1949, Kaufmann Jr. wrote an article about Juhl in the magazine Interiors, which led to Hollis Baker, a furniture manufacturer from Michigan, inviting Juhl to design a modern furniture collection for him. This chain of events was the beginning of what became known as Danish Modern, and a boom for Danish design in the United States.
The sculptural Baker Sofa with its two-piece back became Juhl’s American debut.
