Finn Juhl used this sofa in several of his interior designs such as his Villa Aubertin, which he designed in 1952, as well as in the Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustrimuseum in Trondheim, Norway, where he was commissioned to design a showroom with modern furniture and crafts representing a modern 1952 interior style.
The sofa is hand-upholstered in wool fabric. The wall mounted steel frame is painted light grey.
The Wall Sofa from 1950 is not only an excellent example of Finn Juhl’s inspiration from the so-called free art of his time, but also his boundary-crossing ambition to defy gravity and create movement.
The asymmetrical, excessively upholstered backrest almost floats like a cloud by Magritte above the also floating seat - carried by an almost invisible frame. The unusually shaped back is suited to the human body and facilitates several comfortable sitting and lying positions.
