Swell Sofa Range (2013)
Normann Copenhagen, Denmark
Swell is a minimalist sofa with a playful, light-hearted feel designed by Jonas Wagell. The Scandinavian simplicity of the sofa is accentuated by a stringent design without unnecessary details. In spite of this, Swell oozes with character and personality and its soft, curved shapes make it both inviting and fantastic to sit on. The name Swell is a reference to rising bread with its full shape, consisting of a robust padded back and seat and two bulky armrests. The stitching on the back and the seats divides the sofa into sections and completes the feel.
Jonas Wagell says: “I’ve always been fascinated by minimal form, but I try to add a warm and personal touch to the products. As the name suggests I have taken inspiration from the organic form of rising bread which is fundamentally as simple as it gets, but still attractive to the eye.”
In 2014 new additions to the Swell sofa range was introduced with a two-seat sofa and generous easy chair.
