Sumo’s simple expression makes it easy to spot the detail and complexity of the upholstery and stitching; and the materials – wood, textiles and buttons – have been playfully combined. The visual expression is robust and friendly.
Designer Simon Legald says “I enjoy working with techniques which are necessary for the desgn and instead of hiding them, I like to include them as part of the design. The stitching, upholstery and buttons therefore play an important part in the otherwise simple design. I have also deliberately rounded the square shape slightly to make the expression soft and pleasing to the eye.”
