Building relations in comfortable settings
Skagerak’s new Hven series consisting of armchairs and tables was designed to make you invite your family and friends over a little more often. Build with high comfort, a light and simple expression and from FSC-certified wood, Hven is a long-term minded series with regard to aesthetics, functionality and environment.
In Öresund, a narrow strait separating Denmark and Sweden, the island of Hven shoots up from the sea with its beautiful and steep shoreline, peculiar nature and rich history of cultivation and scientific achievements. Hven once belonged to the Danish Kingdom, but has now been Swedish soil for more than 350 years. Today, the Island has become a cultural and recreational hub, connecting the Danes and the Swedes across the strait.
Just like the island, the Hven Series designed by Swedish Anton Björsing also creates strong ties between Sweden and Denmark and manages to bring people closer together. You might not think about it, but our settings at home is of great importance in how we engage in social activities. To Ditte Buus Nielsen, Design Director at Skagerak, this is an important aspect to consider when developing new designs.
“When you invite your friends over for dinner for example, you want to make sure they sit comfortably, that there is enough space for everyone, and that your house seems welcoming. The new Hven Series ensures all these things.”
