The look is simple and serene in this expansive 3-seater Calmo sofa, where straight lines converge with discrete curved details. Comfy cushions complete the picture in this understated expression of elegance.
Contemporary, cosy and customisable. Those are just some of the attributes you’ll see in Calmo. A sofa concept driven by the idea of personalising the living space. Expressed in an understated aesthetic that exudes elegance. Calmo’s streamlined design is the starting point for your opportunity to add, expand, alter or embellish. The straight lines of the structure gently converge with discrete curves as details. The effect is a calm sense of simplicity.
Portuguese-born, London-based designer Hugo Passos designs everyday objects that are familiar and enjoyable, both in form and use. Passos’ work is inspired by the designer’s ongoing interest in the human scale of everyday objects.
Without disregarding the artistic potential of design, Passos stays true to his view that designs must first and foremost serve their purpose and “do what they’re supposed to”. While paying great attention to the materials, structure and ergonomics that influence the use and final synthesis of the design, his approach resonates deeply with Fredericia’s core design values.
After working as a design assistant at Fredrikson Stallard, Hugo Passos opened his own design studio in 2012. His products for Monocle magazine as well as other works have been featured at SaloneSatellite in Milan and the London Design Festival. The Piloti tables are Passos’ first collaboration with Fredericia.
Since its foundation in 1911, the family-owned company Fredericia has built up a strong tradition of beautiful craftsmanship and innovative design, developed in close collaboration with a carefully chosen circle of internationally recognised designers.
