Velar – Understated and beautiful
The result of Andreas Engesvik’s idea for a sofa design he hadn’t seen before is Velar. A sofa that feels fresh, exciting and reflects today’s informal way of living.
Velar is an understated sofa with a relaxed low-to-the-ground position and generous 2.5-seater proportions with ample space for two people or more. Its straight-forward design combines a minimalist steel tube frame with slim legs, and a single continuous cushion that curves with a high back to comfortably support the sitter’s neck and head.
“Velar has an informal appearance, which I like. I wanted to make a sofa that has that comfortable feeling of sitting up in bed. It’s a very familiar position we all know and enjoy, with good support for the back and head that immediately puts you at ease”, says designer Andreas Engesvik.
Without the armrests commonly included in traditional sofa design, Velar benefits from an open-ended arrangement that facilitates free movement and social harmony between the sofa and its environment. Engesvik explains: “You can naturally reach for objects like glasses, books or phones from side tables or have space for children to perch.”
|As such, Velar complements nearby furniture including side tables, floor lamps, coffee tables and footstools with uninterrupted interaction. Two metres in width, the sofa’s armrest-free design ensures it creates generous space for sitting, even in modest-sized rooms. Learn more about the Velar sofa.|
