Onkel, the Danish word for uncle, is also a name of the charming sofa designed by Simon Legald for Normann Copenhagen. Onkel is a sofa that combines modern forms and traditional, soft curves. This makes it perfect for various décors and living rooms. The outer shell of the sofa has a firm expression, while the cushions are comfortable and inviting. Simon Legald explains: “As a designer, I am curious about how the materials work together with the idea. Onkel is a sofa that was derived of 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 Onkel”.
