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 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.
The materials used for the shell and cushions have been kept in the same color and there
is a lacquered frame in a matching shade. This gives simplicity to the design and
makes Onkel stand as a unified whole.
