Circus is a pouf that has an exclusive, Scandinavian feel, created by the Danish designer, Simon Legald. The pouf is rounded in shape, with the clean, graphic lines characteristic of Scandinavian design.
The versatile Circus pouf allows contradictions to meet in a design whose style is strict and minimalist, while at the same time having a soft and inviting expression.
Circus draws inspiration from antique Moroccan leather poufs, whose focus is on handicraft, and it explores the design construction and plays with the details.
The traditional patchwork patterns are replaced by a plain triangle motif, giving the pouf a contemporary look. Circus is a playful, yet at the same time sophisticated, addition to any furnishing.
Simon Legald says: “I like to work in depth with the construction of a design in order to achieve optimal functionality. Circus is made from two different types of foam: hard foam to maintain the shape of the bottom part of the pouf and softer foam above to provide excellent sitting comfort”.
Textiles are now truly regaining their place in interiors. There is a focus on mixes of materials, textures and unexpected uses. The Circus pouf is available in soft and luxurious closely woven velour in five saturated colours, adding depth and warmth to the decor.
Circus is a multi-functional piece of furniture and can, for example, be used as an extension for your sofa, as a seat for a coffee table or as a decorative seat in the bedroom.
