Swell is a minimalistic collection of furniture for the living room with a playful, light-hearted feel. The soft, curved silhouettes give the furniture pieces an inviting look and ensure a fantastic sitting comfort.
The name Swell is a reference to rising bread. Swell has a full shape, consisting of a robust padded back and seat and two curvy armrests. The stitching on the back and the seats divides the sofas into sections and completes the feel.
Swell is available as a two and three seat sofa as well as an armchair. The range of 21 different colors makes it easy to find a match for any decor by encompassing everything from neutral grey and brownish tones to deep and tranquil shades of blue and purple as well as energetic and bright yellow, green and red and a classic black.

“My ambition is to create simple and honest products that have strong character and warmth. Often with humor and color. I have always been fascinated by minimalism but often find myself lacking something personal or a trace from the creator. Maybe my work could be described as “expressive minimalism”. I believe it is important that design has a connection to local traditions and heritage on some level, without risking being outdated with time.”
