Bridge Sofa

The Bridge is available in the following configurations: 3 seater sofa, 4 seater sofa and above, chaise lounge sofa, corner sofa and sofa with open end.

 

With regards to materials, this modern sofa is available in fabric or leather upholstery.

 

Exceptional modularity is one of the defining characteristics of Jens Juul Eilersen sofas.
Bridge is no exception. Variety reaches new heights, whilst at the same time setting a classic
tone with its tight lines, thin seat cushion and concealed seat gradient.

“Classic, tight lines create a sense of rest. It’s pleasing to look at and creates a lasting impression
that never goes out of style. Bridge has inherited all the proud qualities of the traditional floater
sofa, along with discrete, classic flair to keep it modern. One special feature is that the sofa can
easily glide across the floor on its low-profile, 2 cm legs. This presented both a design challenge
and the inspiration for the name Bridge. A sofa without legs is subject to kicks and marks from
shoes. So I designed a recess to take the lower edge out of the danger zone of kicks and bumps. And
it was this very recess that made the sofa resemble a bridge”, explains Eilersen.
