In 1953 Finn Juhl designed the 53 sofa for Bovirke. The sofa has a more streamlined industrial design than his previous designs. The 53 Sofa is very tight with generous springiness in the otherwise firmly upholstered seat. The back cushions are loose.
Juhl use the sofa himself in his showroom apartment in Bellahøj i Copenhagen and in many of the SAS terminals he designed between 1957 and 1961.
