The Nest collection is as unrestrained as most work from Swedish design studio Form Us With Love, presenting a reversed silhouette—a club chair on a slim structure. The Nest collection demonstrates an exceptional capacity from Danish design company +Halle, manifested in chairs and sofas turned into elevated—yet sheltering—seat of decency.
The series provides an unpronounced divider to the traditional lounge area, by simply creating layers of both high and low seating. The heights offers a sense of privacy, whilst maintaining the comfort of a relaxed armchair.
‘With Nest, you can create a perfect room-in-a-room feeling without having to add traditional tall room dividers or high back sofas. When first installed it was evident that people were sitting next to each other—at different levels—without being affected by their neighbors. With a minimal expression, the Nest Collection, keeps the room open in a new way,’ says Martin Halle, Brand and communication director at +Halle.
Fascinated by the typologies of pedestals, such as the Umpire’s chair on a tennis court, Form Us With Love has experimented with a lofty landscape, adding the element of dignity and softness to a seat with a view.
‘Our ideas of different height layers led, as they often do, into deeper research. We analysed the activities and behaviours of a public spaces, and the upholstered furniture vs. bar stool seating scenario. Instead of putting the two characteristics next to one another, we merged them—creating a tall vertical Nest,’ says John Löfgren, Creative Director at Form Us With Love.
‘We believe that a comfortable high seat is an interesting addition, providing the opportunity to sit longer at a tall table. The skilled craftsmen at +Halle understood the importance of very small details and soon we were deeply entwined in a brilliant design dialogue,’ says Jonas Pettersson, CEO at Form Us With Love.
‘The challenge with the Nest range was the balance between the seat and legs. The importance was adding steadiness, to an elegant, high piece of furniture. Our hard work paid off, producing a durable collection without compromising the sleekness of the reversed figure,’ says Martin Halle, Brand and communication director at +Halle.
The fluid intersection of the seat and the backrest in the Nest collection is about quality and durability, demonstrating the skills on offer in +Halle’s factory.
‘Design shouldn’t be put on a pedestal necessarily, but we thought the idea of celebrating real craft was worth lifting,’ Halle concludes.
+Halle is a Danish high quality contract furniture brand, which develops and produces furniture for institutions, airports, offices, and other public spaces. No matter the location, the job at hand remains—giving humanity a chance to take a break. During the past few years +Halle has delivered furniture to companies like BIG Architects, MoMA, Google, Facebook, Erste Bank, Microsoft, and several airports worldwide.

Emiliano Salci and Britt Moran invested in their individual experience with the profession and study of Design, Art and Fashion, and founded DIMORESTUDIO in 2003.
Since that moment, they have designed and carried out every project in a personal and recognizable way: objects created by historical design masters live together with reclaimed materials and other “bespoke” objects to create and forge a particular atmosphere. A timeless visual and emotional pathway. Research focused on details makes every creation, sign, proposal, suggestion, innovation and reference simple, albeit sophisticated. A language inspired by a set of emotional alchemies made of unexpected choices, preservation, inventions, apprecitation of prints, lights, lacquers and oxidations. An uncensored aesthetic where each item has its own power and expressive “raison d’être”, while representing a part of the ensemble as the protagonist.
DIMORESTUDIO interprets memories and creates dreams. DIMORESTUDIO crosses the boundaries between art and design, fashion and architecture.

Resembling artworks more than conventional fabrics, the contemporary creations produced by the Anne Kyyrö Quinn studio are not textiles as you once knew them. Cut, sewn and finished by hand, our unique choice of luxury natural fabrics are crafted into interior textiles designed to harmonise timelessly with any setting. Each product is conceived as a gesture of simplicity, yet, we make space for bold colours, rich textures and striking motifs.

Our products are based on a portfolio of core designs inspired by organic shapes and expressed with bold simplicity. Whether crafted into bespoke acoustic wall installations or textile art pieces each design has a tactile feel that appeals to the eye as well as to the hand. As we merge twenty-first century design with textures inspired by the natural world, our products bridge the gulf between the urban interior and the natural landscape, and bring an elegant, unassuming beauty into everyday life.
Our commitment to design excellence makes Anne Kyyrö Quinn one of Britain’s leading manufacturers of handcrafted interior textiles. Since the studio was established in 1999, our products and bespoke textile services have been distributed internationally to design showrooms and retail outlets, and marketed by independent agents.

She is, without exception, a ‘hands-on’ and available presence, while managing, overseeing, and organizing every aspect of the work." - LR, WABAN, MA
