Designer Simon Legald has created a pouf in a class of its own. Sumo’s simple expression makes it easy to spot the detail and complexity of the upholstery and stitching; and the materials – wood, textiles and buttons – have been playfully combined. The visual expression is robust and friendly.
The inspiration behind Sumo originates from the classic Danish furniture industry, in which special attention is paid to the detail and craftsmanship in creating the perfect balance between aesthetics and functionality.
Simon Legald says: “I enjoy working with techniques which are necessary for the design and I like including – instead of hiding – them as part of the design. The synergies, upholstery and buttons therefore play an important part in the otherwise simple design. I have also consciously stayed away from the square shapes and made the expression soft and pleasing to the eye.”
