Onkel (the Danish word for Uncle) is a sofa that combines the simplicity of modern forms with the soft curves of the olden days.
The outer shell of the sofa has a firm expression, while the cushions are comfortable and inviting.
The Onkel sofa is a recognizably Nordic design available in a two and three seat version. Choose between textiles in blue, purple, light grey or dark grey or go for the new leather version in black or cognac.
Is shipped in a wooden box for good protection. To preserve color and appearance, we recommend regular vacuuming, preferably every week, with a soft fitting. Seat height: 42 cm ×
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.”
