The designer Jesper Ståhl focuses on the details with his new family of upholstery furniture called ‘Nest’. The absence of cushions creates a focus on the sofa’s profile and its stitching.
“I wanted to design a sofa and chair with an inviting corner that one can creep up in, almost like a bird in a nest,” Jesper Ståhl explains. “But it was important that the sofa and easy chair should
look good from all directions and that is why they slope and are rounded towards the bottom.”
With its strong pine frame, its upholstery that can sustain more than 100000 on the Martindale rubbing test (where 35000 Martindale is considered fully adequate for use in public spaces)
and its generous height above the floor making it easy to vacuum clean, Nest is clearly well designed in the full sense of the word.
