Circus draws inspiration from antique Moroccan leather poufs, whose focus is on handicraft and construction. Thedesigner Simon Legald has explored the design construction and played with the details. The traditional patchwork patterns are replaced by a simple and clean triangle motif, giving the pouf a contemporary look. Circus is a playful, yet at the same time sophisticated, addition to any furnishing.
Dimensions: diameter 46 x 40cm high
Material: velour | foam
Designer Simon Legald says: 'I like to work in depth with the construction of a design in order to achieve optimal functionality. Circus is made from two different types of foam: firm foam to maintain the shape of the bottom part of the pouf and softer foam above to provide excellent sitting comfort. Circus changes its feel depending on what you put it together with'.
The pouf is covered in velour and has a wooden plate at the bottom for stability. Please note fabric can have slight variations hich is natural to this material.
Maintenance: Clean with textile or upholstery cleaner. Frequent vacuuming with a soft fitting is recommended to preserve colour and appearance.

Jan Anderson and Poul Madsen teamed up to create the Normann Copenhagen brand in 1999 with a vision to make a difference in the design industry. Three years later they launched the first product, the lamp Norm 69. Within five years more than 38 products followed, as well as collaborations with established design names and new talent from around the world.
In 2005, Jan and Poul moved from a small design store at Strandboulevarden to an old 1700m2 cinema at Osterbro in Copenhagen. They were determined to create a unique retail environment that would add something new and exciting to Copenhagen. Today the store has not only won several prizes as the coolest design store in Copenhagen, but also serves as a platform for great parties, fashion events, art exhibitions as well as small happenings. Normann Copenhagen love to challenge the conventional design rules. This is why you will find traditional materials put into untraditional use such as a washing-up bowl in rubber, a vase made out of Silicon and last but not least a dog made out of plastic. Normann Copenhagen is a way of living - a mindset, a way to view the world in a new and different way.

Simon Legald graduated from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the summer of 2012. His work consists of both small- and large scale products. Simon’s designs are often created in a dialogue between craftsmanship and industry. He also likes to incorporate the techniques that are necessary for the structure of a product into the design by highlighting them visually.
“Honesty is what makes a product understandable and is what describes the products functionality. If you understand the product, it doesn’t need any explanation. The essence of my design is for it to be bought and used. Therefore it has to satisfy not only the functional aspects, but also the psychological and aesthetic needs. For me simplicity describes the true identity of objects and makes them trustworthy. In my design I try not to add any unnecessary details. I work with simplicity by highlighting the necessities instead of hiding them. It gives the product a simple and honest expression.”
