Concept

The Swan™ Sofa was made as a special model for the furnishing of suites, lounges and the panoramic restaurant at the SAS hotel in 1958. The sofa was in production from 1964-1974 and was reintroduced in 2000. The characteristic 3-dimensional shape contains no straight lines but is based on curves like the Egg and the Swan. It is available in a variety of fabric upholstery as well as exclusive leather types. The sofa rests on a shaker base in satin polished aluminium

The shell is made of polyurethane with glass fibre reinforcement. It is upholstered with cold-cured foam and covered with fabric or leather. The shaker base is made of moulded aluminium. The two parts of the base are connected with an aluminium rail, which is screwed onto the bottom of the sofa with 2 M6 screws in each shaker base. The feet are provided with synthetic black-grey leg ferrules.
