Space Copenhagen designed Swoon to fill the gap between a conventional lounge chair and a typical armchair – for use in lounge areas as well as private homes. The organic, yet structured design holds the seated body and provides an instant feeling of relaxation while offering excellent back support.
Swoon is a comfortable yet sophisticated easy chair designed for lounge areas and private homes. Designed by Space Copenhagen in 2016, the chair stylishly combines an injection-moulded shell upholstered in either leather or fabric and soft fabric cushions.
In line Space Copenhagen’s signature style, the look is both organic and contemporary. The one-piece chair shell merges into the armrest, back and seat to create a perfect sculpture.
The Swoon chair was born out of specific need with many modern interior designs. In their work with the conceptual interior design of hotels and restaurants all over the world, Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou of Space Copenhagen often had difficulties finding a small easy chair, something between a conventional lounge chair and a typical armchair, that would fit into lounge areas. With Swoon, they designed exactly the chair they were looking for.
A feature often overlooked in contemporary easy chair design is the need for adequate back support. Swoon has been carefully developed to provide support, and at the same time an immediate feeling of relaxation. The name ‘Swoon’ refers to an instant feeling of rapture and belief in the future.
Copenhagen design duo Space Copenhagen make headlines with their signature style of elegant, yet classical design lines infused with a contemporary edge that emerge from intuition and emotion. In their work with Fredericia, Space Copenhagen seek to rethink the upholstering traditions held at our factory for more than 100 years.
Space Copenhagen was established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou - both graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture. Their studio is known for defying habits and employing a sincere personal vision to their design.
The projects Space Copenhagen has turned their hands to include everything from interior design, to furniture and refined objects for everyday use as well as artistic installations and art direction. Their furniture ideas are often initiated in relation to interior design in the hospitality and luxury retail sector – an area where the studio has established a strong identity. Space Copenhagen has done interior design for some of the world’s most influential restaurants such as Nordic pioneer restaurant NOMA, Geranium, owned by Bóchuse D’or winner Rasmus Kofoed and newcomer Geist, run by Michelin star chef Bo Bech.
