Hygge is a minimalist seating collection created by Malmö-based designers Kauppi & Kauppi for Karl Andersson & Söner. The Hygge seating islands comes in three sizes with three selectable accessories – all connected to the extended solid wooden legs. A family of furniture capturing the great woodwork, craftsmanship and tradition found at Karl Andersson & Söner, established in 1898. The big size ottomans offer a space to be shared by one, two or more individuals. Form follows function – the character and area of use of Hygge changes depending on chosen accessory. The round shape proposes the ottomans to be placed in the center of interiors . Repeated in numbers and varied in sizes, the Hygge islands can create dynamic groups resembling an indoor, on – land, archipelago. Seating Islands for a short break, a rest, a conversation or a coffee when waiting for the mobile phone to be recharged.
“The Hygge family of furniture is developed to leave a lot of options open for the interior designers to play. Its flexibility in use, functionality and expression will easy lend itself to interiors in a broad range of styles. Fully dressed in black it will signal a minimalistic and strong attitude, while a blond soft material and surface choice, will emphasize and flirt more with the Scandi – soft tradition ” says Johan Kauppi. The three optional Hygge accessories are designed to reach out a hand to the small or big needs people may have, sharing a public seating space. The diagonally armrest creates a sympathetic support for every individual who appreciate a sturdy grip when rising. An attractive detail in interiors with a certain focus and attention on care.
