DESCRIPTION

With AJ6, Danish master Arne Jacobsen's iconic Mayor Sofa adapts for the oft-smaller footprint of living spaces in a 2-seater version. Named for its 1939 introduction at the Søllerød city hall, the lines of the original are faithfully reproduced by Copenhagen's &Tradition, with a pleasingly austere shape softened by wool Maharam fabric. Frame and exposed legs in solid oak and hand-built by skilled craftsmen, upholding the legacy of Arne Jacobsen's spare aesthetic.

ABOUT THE BRAND: &TRADITION

&TRADITION

Design is never static. When Copenhagen-based &Tradition was established in 2010, founder Martin Kornbek Hansen's mission was to produce work that was defined by a unique vision, whether it came from Danish legends of the past or young innovators of the future. The roster extends from timeless luminaries such as Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen to current leading lights Samuel Wilkinson and Norm.Architects to exciting new names Mia Hamborg and Victor Vetterlein. As the company's Kornbek Hansen puts it:  "We see a kinship between the old masters, who were avant-garde in their time, and new designers creating the ground-breaking icons of today."

With its library of furniture and lighting extending from the 1930s to the present day, the firm is uniquely positioned to carry on the Nordic tradition of unstinting craftsmanship and adroit use of materials. Nonetheless, &Tradition sees its future in global terms, handpicking design talent and production facilities internationally in an effort to continually produce relevant product and engage a new generation of conscious consumers.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER: ARNE JACOBSEN

ARNE JACOBSEN

"The fundamental factor is proportion,” said this icon of Danish design and minimalist style shortly before his death in 1971. Though trained as an architect (and he abhorred being called a designer), Arne Jacobsen perhaps is most remembered today for his furniture, lighting and household objects. His 3-legged Ant Chair (1951) inspired by a Charles Eames plywood chair was an instant classic and led to other sculptural furnishings such as the Egg Chair and Swan seating series.

Born in 1902, he originally trained as a bricklayer before studying at the Royal Danish Academy of Arts. Visiting the 1925 Exposition Internationale des Art Decoratifs in Paris, he was forever influenced by the modernists Le Corbusier and Mies van der Rohe. A major figure in Danish architecture, Arne Jacobsen’s more memorable products include the 1960s Cylinda line of bar and table goods for Stelton, acclaimed with numerous international design awards.
