Concept

MAYOR was created for Søllerød City Hall, built from 1939-1942 as part of a total design where Arne Jacobsen, in cooperation with Flemming Lassen, was the main architect for everything from the building’s appearance to the design of furniture and door handles.
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 that fits into the modern home, office or lobby, where quality and design are important parameters. The sofa was designed long before the furniture for which Arne Jacobsen is known today, and it is clearly distinguishable from those designs. 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. & thus the sofa fits perfectly into both modern homes and workplaces, where the trend is towards torn down walls and large open areas. Here, the high back creates an intimate atmosphere and space within the room.

The black stained frame adds a more edgy and graphic expression to the sofa, yet still revealing the solid wood and its regional tradition.
