Press release: Model Bridge
Ultra modular floater with classical undertones



Exceptional modularity is one of the defining characteristics of Jens Juul Eilersen's sofas. Bridge is no exception. Variety reaches new heights, whilst at the same time setting a classic tone with its tight lines, thin seat cushion and concealed seat gradient.


"Classic, tight lines create a sense of rest. It's pleasing to look at, and creates a lasting impression that never goes out of style. Bridge has inherited all the proud qualities of the traditional floater sofa, along with discrete, classic flair to keep it modern. One special feature is that the sofa can easily glide across the floor on its low-profile, 2 cm legs. This presented both a design challenge and the inspiration for the name Bridge. A sofa without legs is subject to kicks and marking from shoes. So I designed a recess to take the lower edge out of the danger zone of kicks and bumps. And it was this very recess that made the sofa resemble a bridge", explains Eilersen.


Configure your very own sofa

The point of a sectional sofa is that it should be flexible so it can be expanded and reconfigured as needed. Bridge brings another degree to this flexibility. "Bridge is quite simply an unlimited universe. Its fixed sofas. Its end pieces and middle sections with both short and long backs. Its footrests. All available in various standard widths, and naturally one can freely add bolster pillows and down throw cushions in a range of sizes. Arms and backs have the same profile, which means that sofas and end pieces can be turned into corners. And for highly specialised situations, it's possible to have your Bridge components custom-made to personal sizes."




Enjoy an Eilersen

Your home should be a place where you are most comfortable. Here you surround yourself with things you have chosen for yourself. Because you need them and because they appeal to you. Furniture shapes, colours and subtleties speak to your senses. Therefore, it really matters how the sofa fulfils its mission. Your sofa should be both comfortable to sit in - and live up to your life values and taste for the aesthetic. We all know the feeling of being a place we like. That's why we say: Enjoy an Eilersen.
