Arbour Sofas & Lounge chairs

design Andreas Engesvik & Daniel Rybakken

Arbour sofas and armchairs is a eco-designed collection by the Norwegian designer duo Andreas Engesvik and Daniel Rybakken, where all the technical choices have been made to meet the particularly demanding criteria of the Nordic Swan Ecolabel. But if ecology is taken very seriously, Arbour is also a collection that fully respects the values specific to Scandinavian design: rigor and simplicity of lines, natural materials and quality of seat where softness cannot be obtained by sacrificing ergonomic principles.

Designed to be durable and passed down through generations, Arbour sofas and armchairs are assembled from components that can be individually replaced when needed. They have a FSC-certified wooden frame (from sustainably managed forests) waxed or coated with water-based paint. A large number of cushion coverings offered are Eco labeled by the European Union. 

Arbour is available in four versions: two generously proportioned 2-seater and 3-seater Arbour sofas, a more compact Arbour Club sofa, suitable for urban spaces, and an Arbour Club armchair. 

Structure FSC certified wood – waxed oiled oak, waxed oiled walnut or water painted beech (black, wine red or bottle green) – solid wood and plywood elements with elastic straps – feet with felt glides 

Padding Inner cushions made with 50% recycled PE fiber balls and 50% recycled shredded foam from leftover materials in production
