Gentle arches, plump cushions and an airy base are all dominant character traits of Normann Copenhagen’s new modular sofa design, Ark. The design plays with curves and volume, giving Ark its recognizable features for an expression that is simultaneously minimalistic and full of depth.
Ark appears almost as a sofa built solely from cushions, alluding to its soft, welcoming expression. The design seems to be divided into smaller, pillowed sections. The seat, back and armrests all appear to be separate, neatly arranged pillows. This unique composition contributes to Ark’s embracing expression, while the simplicity of the design radiates sophistication and elegance.
A recurring element in the design, Ark gets its name from the Danish word for arches. The subtle sway of the cushions creates a distinct, visual softness that gesticulates at the equally soft sitting comfort. A slight space between seat and floor infuses the design with airiness, while also presenting a practical advantage, providing easy access for cleaning below the sofa.
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."
