pagode sofa

Design Tove & Edvard Kindt-Larsen, 1956
Solid oak or walnut, upholstery
Made by Audo

An elegant masterpiece by the husband-and-wife designer duo Tove and Edvard Kindt-Larsen, the Pagoda Sofa is unknown to most. Avant-garde and artistic for its time, its low, almost flat, armrests and beautiful V-shaped legs make it light and precise in its design language and give the sofa a contemporary look. Taking its name from Asian architecture, it is expressive and unique in its simplicity, much like the temples it refers to. First presented to the world in 1956, today it remains a striking piece of design.

Front figures in the development of Danish furniture design between 1930 and 1960, Tove and Edvard Kindt-Larsen (1906-1994 & 1901-1982) were visionary designers. Creating furniture, silverware, jewelry, textiles and more, the prolific couple were the harbingers of a new era in Danish furniture design, eschewing the traditional furniture set in favor of individual and adaptable design pieces that could be curated according to style, use and mood. It was a breakthrough in the Danes' way of interior decorating, as well as the general regard for furniture furniture.

Their Pagode Sofa was presented for the first time at master cabinetmaker Thorvald Madsen's stand at the Snedkerlauget exhibition in Copenhagen in 1956. It challenged established design with its significant idiom; light and precise in its design language and inspired by Japanese architecture and temple construction. The Pagode Sofa never quite achieved the same status as the couple's other pieces of furniture during their lifetime. But today its urban, unique and expressive form is enjoying new relevance in modern spaces.
