A beautiful sofa classic, designed in the 50s by the architect Hans Olsen, who was one of the great Danish furniture designers of the era. The Dwell Sofa features an eternal 50s design with armrests in an organic design that invite you simply to remain - or ‘dwell’ - in the sofa. At the same time, the sleek, rounded solid wooden legs add to the overall impression of this light, accommodating piece of furniture. While the two-seater sofa is an elegant design element in any small flat, it is just as stylish as part of a bigger sofa group: for example, accompanied by the lounge chair in the same timeless design. The sofa is fully upholstered and comes in several versions: everything from classic leather to a lighter appearance with fabric, including the popular bouclé that lends an extra touch of character to the self-coloured sofa. The body and seat cushion are in the same colour, accentuating the sofa's organic design. The various fabrics can be combined to create a vibrant look. Dwell is also available in several two-tone versions to create a bolder appearance with the body and seat cushion in different colours – a solution that Hans Olsen was fond of utilising. Choose from the highest quality leather and carefully selected fabrics and shades from the Warm Nordic universe.

Hans Olsen
Hans Olsen’s (1919-1992) remarkable designs from the 1950s are vivid examples of the beautiful diversity of Danish Modernism. This Danish architect and industrial designer took on the classic virtues of the Academy of Fine Arts and the great master, Kaare Klint, but opted for a more playful and experimental approach to furniture design. Hans Olsen challenged contemporary production methods and much of his inspiration came from the opportunities offered by moulding wood.
