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 consists of a frame with cushions upholstered in either durable furniture textile or soft leather. The inspiration for the cushions derives from the more bombastic upholstered sofas typical of the pre-1950s era. The back cushion has been elegantly encapsulated in the frame to accentuate the union of two very different modes of expression.
Simon Legald explains: "As a designer, I am curious about how the materials work together with the idea. Onkel is a sofa that was designed in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. In creating Onkel, I have revived old craftsmanship techniques and used them in a new context. In doing this, the details add character to the design."
