The Mayor AJ6 sofa’s modest dimen­sions of 138 cm in length, make it the perfect piece for smaller homes and spaces – meeting a growing trend of small living. The sofa respects the orig­i­nal design of the larger Mayor AJ5 sofa, while this updated two-seater empha­sizes the classic and iconic shape.

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.

The Mayor sofa was initially intro­duced in 1939 in conjunc­tion with Søllerød City Hall, also designed by Arne Jacob­sen and Flem­ming Lassen. Being respon­si­ble for the entire city hall’s aesthetic appear­ance, from the design of the entire build­ing to furni­ture and small details such as door handles, Jacob­sen & Lassen also designed a wedding room with accom­pa­ny­ing furni­ture — includ­ing a sofa for the waiting area. Exploit­ing the symbol­ism of a ritual act, they created a univer­sal design that shows a moder­a­tion of modernism and a unique regional adaption.
