Out of respect for the original design, the new addition emphasizes the classic and iconic shape. With its modest dimensions of just 138 cm in length, the sofa ts perfectly into smaller homes and spaces – meeting a growing trend of small living. The frame is made from solid oak and is hand-built by skilled craftsmen, which makes the sofa a true statement of handcraft and traditional woodworks.

Representatives of Danish Modernism and known for their Functionalist approach to design, Arne Jacobsen and Flemming Lassen are considered among Scandinavia's most influential architects. After setting up an office space together in the early 1930s, they conceived the award-winning “House of the Future”: a spiral-shaped home replete with a helicopter pad, a conveyor tube for mail and a kitchen stocked with ready-made meals (a rather unheard of concept at the time). They went on to design numerous other projects together and individually, which brought them international acclaim.
In 1929 Jacobsen designed the Bellevue Lamp, a Bauhaus-inspired product that signaled the dawn of Scandinavian minimalism, where graceful lines and a clean silhouette meet sculptural simplicity.
