Reason is a reinterpretation of the Danish design language from the 50s where big design icons such as Hans J. Wegner and Illum Wikkelsø
helped create the style still defines Danish design.
The low armrests on Reason in combination with the long upholstered seating surfaces and backs finished with an exclusive frame and
legs made of solid oak, reminiscent of the 50s and the Danish design icons.
Reason sofa series consists of a large 2.5-seater sofa a 2 seater sofa and 2 seater sofa with chaise longue. A daybed and a pouf.

Reason is pulled in a contemporary direction around the performance characteristics and comfort. The edges are "sanded" away and
delicious soft material makes Reason into a sofa for the consumer of today
