On the hunt for the perfect Nordic-style sofa? Let me introduce you to the minimal Spoke sofa designed by Norwegian design duo Anderssen & Voll for the Danish furniture company TAKT.
Three years in the making, the Spoke sofa is the first product to emerge from TAKT‘s collaboration with Anderssen & Voll – one of the most accomplished studios in contemporary Scandinavian design. Pared back to the first principles; ensuring it is structurally transparent, entirely demountable and made from the most sustainable materials viable today, the sofa combines sustainability with modern craft aesthetics. This beautiful three-seat sofa’s clean lines, contemporary style, and carefully chosen materials make it a versatile and stylish addition to your living space.
Launched this summer, every detail has been considered from easy-to-clean surfaces and replaceable parts to proportions that support multiple uses, and a style and colour palette developed with longevity in mind. By focusing on these many small details, the aim is to achieve genuine, meaningful sustainability and circularity.
The Spoke sofa is available in beech or oak and comes with upholstery in seven different colours by the Danish textile brand Gabriel. You can order the fabric samples from the TAKT website to make sure you find the right shade for your Nordic-style home.
A significant part of the product-development process was spent ensuring that all the sofa’s textiles were easy to remove for cleaning or replacement, facilitating maintenance and therefore extending its lifespan. The sofa is designed for repair with replacement parts stocked so that its furniture can be handed down to future generations.
The Spoke sofa is a well-crafted, durable piece of furniture which is built to last. Its lightweight but sturdy frame is full of crafted details that ensure it can be appreciated from every angle, even from below. The attention to detail and superior construction allow the sofa to maintain its aesthetic appeal and functionality over time.
“Spoke sofa’s design, which has references to classic Danish furniture, has coalesced to create a form that evokes the attitude of contemporary Japanese aesthetics”, says Anderssen & Voll.
