Arne Jacobsen Swan Sofa-Premium Leather-Brown

Taste and sophistication are the marks of Arne Jacobsen’s classic Swan Sofa. This attractive couch is a long version of the Swan Chair and enjoys the same flowing curves and elegant outline. It combines unique, innovative design and great comfort for relaxation. Along with other Arne Jacobsen icons, it was designed for the suites, lounges and panoramic restaurant of the Radisson SAS Royal hotel in Copenhagen in 1958. The impressive Swan Sofa was a favourite amongst the popular guests of this famous design-led hotel.

We produce the Swan Chair with reinforced fibreglass shell, which rests on an aluminium frame. The Swan Sofa is available in a classic leather, premium leather or cashmere finish in a choice of different colours.

About the Designer

Arne Jacobsen

Arne Jacobsen

A career encapsulated by flirting between controversy and art nouveaux genius, Arne Jacobsen established global infamy by combining modernist ideals with a Nordic love of naturalism. Born in Copenhagen in 1902, Jacobsen secured an education at the Royal Academy of Arts in his homeland, drawing all future inspiration from the study of leading architects and designers of that era.

Despite elements of opposition towards avant-garde principals and idiosyncrasies within his architecture, Jacobsen is most decorated for his work within interior, furniture, textile and porcelain design - praised for a clear styling and the successful combination of form and function. There can be no greater compliment paid than the sheer fact that some of the Dane’s work received classic status during his lifetime, reaching cinematic acclaim with the use of his pieces in Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Arne Jacobsen’s use of propelled curves in a minimalist fashion earned his furniture countless awards, including the 1968 International Design Award from the American Institute of Interior Designers, the 1967 ID-prize from the Danish Society of Industrial Design and the 1957 Milan XI Triennale in Italy.
