Burra is short for "burrata", the round Italian cheese famous for its creaminess: Burra invites you to curl up in its voluptuous design, with its round, prominent seat, full upholstery, soft curves and wrap-around armrests offering absolute seating comfort. 

Designer Simon Legald explains the Burra design process: "When designing a chair, it's crucial to consider its comfort and dimensions. I wanted to create a chair with an interesting interplay between these two factors, using sober, minimalist lines. There was another requirement: this piece of furniture had to be sculptural and have the potential to become the centerpiece of the room. The result is a seat that gives the impression of being as soft and comfortable as it really is, thanks to its "inflated" volumes and voluptuous upholstery."

Simon Legald

Simon Legald graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2012. He has worked on the development of numerous products from small to large scale. Legald's designs are the result of an exchange between craft and industry. In his work, he emphasizes the structure of the product, which becomes intrinsic to the design.

"Honesty is what makes a product intelligible and defines its functionality. If you understand the product, then there's no need for explanations. The very purpose of my designs is to be bought and used. So they have to meet functional needs as well as psychological and aesthetic ones. For me, simplicity is what describes the true identity of objects. In my designs, I try not to add superfluous details. All this gives the products a simple, honest expression."
