Product Story

MAYOR was created for Søllerød City Hall, built 1939-1942. The Danish architects Arne Jacobsen and Flemming Lassen was responsible for the entire town hall aesthetic appearance, from the design of the entire building to furniture and small details such as door handles.

The two architects created many award-winning buildings together, and at the time furniture designs came second. Together they created, in addition to Søllerød Town Hall, numerous of other award-winning projects. Now, more than 70 years later, the team receives yet another award for their astonishing designs. Recently the MAYOR sofa has won the award for “Best Reissue” in the prestigious Wallpaper* Design Award 2013.

MAYOR shows a moderation of modernism and a unique regional adaptation: the frame is made of massive oak, the upholstery is tight but with three loose cushions that comprise the seating area, and there is generally a more human approach to modernism with a focus on liveability. The sofa is made of high quality materials – the original model features light cognac leather – and is available in various colours and materials. The tight upholstery and the two rows of elegant buttons that extend over the armrests and back give the sofa a simple and stylish look. 


& thus the sofa fits perfectly into both modern homes and workplaces, where quality and design are important 
parameters.
