In 1939 Arne Jacobsen and Flemming Lassen won an open competition to design a new town hall, a new library and a theatre in Søllerød (Rudersdal). For the town hall, they designed a wedding room with accompanying furniture - including a sofa for the waiting area for the couple to sit in before getting married. Designed for the solemnity, the appearance of the sofa was shaped with high vertical backs and sides.
