Swedish designer Jonas Wagell has created and design an armchair and a two seated edition of the padded Swell sofa for the Danish furniture brand Normann Copenhagen. The collection takes on the shape of a risen loaf of bread and was exhibited at the Stockholm Design Week in 2014.

"[Bread] is a good and descriptive way to communicate the form. The words and the name paints pictures before people have even seen the product," says Wagell.

Each piece of furniture found in the Swell collection consists of curvaceous padding and fat armrests, lifted off the ground using tiny metal feet. The padded oval shape was created using a wooden frame, covered in polyether foam and upholstered. The collection comes in 21 different colors: olive green, grey, brown and many more.
