Combining a wood veneer shell with sumptuous fabric upholstery and a solid metal frame, Simon Legald has harmoniously blended these different elements in the Normann Copenhagen Pad Lounge Chair Low Swivel to create a perfectly balanced and timeless design. The lounge chair has a comfortable yet streamlined form, enhanced by its contemporary aesthetic. Legald’s use of upholstery on the chair’s front gives it an elegant and sophisticated profile, perfect for use as a centrepiece for your living spaces. Part of the Normann Copenhagen Pad collection.
Simon Legald studies design at the The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and will graduate in the Summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable, and is what describes functionality of the products. If you understand the product, it doesn’t 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 designs 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.”
