Model 540 Sofa by Gijs van der Sluis for Van der Sluis Stalen Meubelen, 1960s, The Netherlands

Not a lot is known today about Dutch industrial designer Gijs van der Sluis, however the Model 540 Sofa for Gispen is one of his most celebrated designs. The self-taught modernist designer established a steel manufacturing company, Van der Sluis Stalen Meubelen, with his brother in the 1940s, and the company’s success can be attributed to the young designer’s genius and ambition. Throughout the 50s and 60s in The Netherlands, Gijs also designed for t’ Spectrum and his own manufacturing company, and became known for his affinity for clean lines and functionalism.

Gijs designed the celebrated Model 540 sofa as a contemporary and elegant space-saving option; it doubles as a sofa and a single bed. With one swift movement, the seat of the sofa can be pulled forwards, creating space for one person to lie comfortably. Overall, the execution is seamless with functionality front and centre. The steel frame adds a lightness and allows the cushions to float effortlessly where they stand. Upholstered in new mustard In Style upholstery, this is a true celebration of vintage Dutch design for a 21st Century home.
