Soft and cosy no longer means big and bulky furniture sets. With its curvy smoothness and soft padded construction the new AYO collection from Danish Stouby Furniture is created for absolute relaxation. Yet the furniture has a modern Scandinavian expression with a simple and functional design.
Loosen up in strict design
The absolute focus of the AYO collection is relaxation. The sofas and chair are very comfortable for both sitting and lying. You can tuck yourself in the soft padded cushions, read your favourite book, watch a movie, or tell your children a story. You can meditate, digest the input of the day, unwind and regain energy and vitality. AYO is the place where you drop down, withdraw from the world and take that little break we all need in a hectic life.
”AYO is created for the body. The furniture invites you to sit down, lie down, snuggle and sling across. The shapes are smooth and soft and the materials are natural such as wood and wool. This is furniture for snug cosiness and relaxing rest,” says the award-winning designer Susanne Grønlund, creator of the AYO collection.
The smooth curvy shapes and soft padding are contrasted elegantly by a functional design, contrasting seems and light wooden legs. Voluminous softness are cleverly combined with Scandinavian lightness in a smooth feminine design expression.
Casual calmness in public areas
In public rooms such as a hotel lobby, an office or a doctors waiting room the AYO collection can create a casual and relaxing refuge. The curvy feminine lines brings softness to the room and adds comfort, personality and calmness to the interior design. AYO adds calmness in more ways than one: The soft sofas invite you to a calm break and the soft voluminous design improves the acoustics in large rooms.
”My design expression derives from the modern Scandinavian design tradition, but I aim to soften the strict lines a little and add a touch of humour and softness. The design of AYO is inspired by the smooth shapes of stones from the beach, which are rounded by the waves and sea. Some are flat while others are voluminous and round. Stones from the sea also have a unique surface structure which have inspired my choice of fabrics,” says Susanne Grønlund.
Danish designer Susanne Grønlund has previously won two Red Dot Design Awards along with several awards from the Norwegian Design Council.
The AYO collection consist sofas in three sizes and one high armchair and one low armchair. Designer Susanne Grønlund and Stouby Furniture have aimed to create a flexible collection, that fits many different rooms and styles, and accommodate all family sizes, rooms sizes and project sizes. With AYO you can create an individual décor and design a room with character.
