The Wall Sofa

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.

Finn Juhl featured this sofa in several of his interior design projects such as Villa Aubertin in Denmark, which he designed in 1952, and in the museum Nordenfjeldske Kunstindustri-museum in Trondheim, Norway. At the museum, he was commissioned to design a showroom with modern furniture and crafts representing a modern 1952 interior style.

Finn Juhl’s extravagantly upholstered chairs and sofas from the 1940s and early 1950s are deeply original. No other furniture designer has so radically expressed the surrealistic sculptural shapes that dominated this time, as a parallel to the trends reigning on the art scene.
