Design by Simon Legald, 2015
Normann Copenhagen expands the popular Era lounge series, designed by Simon Legald, with a two-seat sofa with well- proportioned design, a sharp silhouette and a contemporary expression. The series' DNA is clearly evident in the sofa's soft curves and sleek lines, which express a sophisticated calm that invites the sitter to pure and unreserved relaxation.
The small sofa is once again highly relevant after a several years dominated by larger sofas. Its simple design, with tight-fitted upholstery and wooden legs originated back in the blossoming functionalism of the 1930s and '40s, as a rebellion against the bulky, Victorian style of the time.
Today, there is a growing need for more flexible furnishings - in public as well as private spaces. Many factors, including less space, many different activities and a need to be online have affected our way of being together. This has created a need for personal space for the individual within the room. The practical size of the Era sofa allows it to easily accommodate furnishing needs in both large and small homes. This is combined with an incredibly strong construction that makes it well-suited for public spaces.
The shell has a steel reinforcement for adding strength. Clean with textile or upholstery cleaner. Clean with a damp cloth. Use the foam from warm water with soap flakes. Frequently vacuuming with a soft fitting is recommended both for textile and leather to preserve colour and appearance. Era is delivered assembled.
