Onkel (the Danish word for Uncle) by Normann Copenhagen is a sofa that combines the simplicity of modern forms with the soft curves of the olden days. The outer shell of the sofa has a firm expression, while the cushions are comfortable and inviting. The choice of material adds a touch of sensuality with its characteristic references to Scandinavian design.
The Onkel sofa consists of a simple, upholstered frame with cushions. The inspiration for the cushions derives from the more bombastic upholstered sofas typical of the pre-1950s era. To emphasize the merger of two completely different worlds of expression, the back cushion has been elegantly encapsulated by the frame.
The materials in Onkel create a dynamic effect with its plain-colored frame, mottled back and cushion and color-lacquered underframe. All in the same color shade. This is what makes Onkel stand as a complete unit.
