This spectacular series of contemporary seats was inspired by traditional Ottoman stools.
The series includes a low-slung seat with a backrest, an ottoman and a footstool. Each seat is made with soft contours that enhance comfort and add support to the overall structure. The seats are bordered by a single, unbroken seam that forms a soft edge around the sides. The version with the backrest is shaped by a subtle fold that divides the back from the seat. Each of the designs is available in a selection of fabrics. The seats are subtle enough to blend in with most interiors, yet striking enough to stand out in a contemporary space.
Mattias Stenberg is a Swedish designer and a graduate of the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. Mattias approaches design from a holistic perspective, relating architectural environments to the human form and making mass-produced objects feel tactile and handcrafted. Since establishing his studio in 2010, Mattias has produced an impressive range of furniture and designs he describes as ‘everyday objects’; yet, the products he creates are anything but. The soft carpets, tactile furniture, smooth glassware and chic lighting Mattias designs have a distinctively industrial aesthetic while being inviting and accessible. This approach is reflected in the range of Ottoman seating Mattias designed for Northern. They, too, resonate with comfort, welcoming and warmth.
