The Rar collection takes its name from the Danish word for pleasant, alluding to its soft and comfortable seat and uncomplicated expression. The collection comprises an armchair, a 2 seater sofa and a 3 seater sofa, all with the same simplistic, timeless design language. Rar is crafted from PU foam with a wooden reinforcement structure inside and powder-coated steel legs and comes in two different textiles and one leather option.
Textile: Clean with textile or upholstery cleaner. Leather: Clean with a damp cloth. Use warm water with soap flakes. Frequent vacuuming with a soft fitting is recommended for both textile and leather to preserve color and appearance.
With its easy-to-like silhouette and impeccable comfort, Rar is an uncomplicated sofa collection that will adapt seamlessly to many interiors and tastes. Capturing the essence of its inviting nature, Rar takes its name from the Danish word for pleasant. Comprising an armchair, a 2-seater sofa, and a spacious 3-seater sofa, this collection embodies a humble design language that seamlessly integrates into any space.
Crafted with a focus on minimalistic lines and with attention to the smallest of details, Rar combines a sturdy wooden reinforcement structure, enveloped in sumptuous PU foam and exquisite textiles. The epitome of simplicity, the Rar design carefully emphasizes a select few refined elements, creating an ambiance of effortless sophistication. Notably, the meeting point between the armrests and the backrest makes an interesting detail, as the armrests elegantly frame the flat surface of the backrest. This discreet yet charismatic detail infuses the design with character and refinement.
Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon's designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
"Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it does not need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore, it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design, I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression."
