Form is a series that combines function, aesthetic, and a simple design.
The upholstered chair emphasizes the main concept of the design, and is a beautiful illustration of how Form’s strong design language and well considered silhouette gets a different, sensuous dimension and increased comfort. Luxurious woolen textiles and exclusive leather soften the expression and add warmth, while the specially developed mounting solution also gets a new appearance, taking the look in new directions.
With more than 40.000 possible combinations, you are able to customize your very own unique upholstered chair. Play with material mixes, color combinations and contrasts between texture, and create the exact design you desire.
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
