Nya Berlin

In 1937, Carl Malmsten designed a sofa for the Swedish diplomatic mission in Berlin. He named the sofa Berlin. Twenty years later, he modified the model slightly and called it Nya Berlin (New Berlin). In the following years, only a few copies were made. In 2008, the strict sofa with clean lines was chosen by Jonny Johansson at Acne and was made exclusively for the fashion brand’s flagship stores around the world. Since 2010, the elegant sofa is in production.
