NIU is inspired by a box that opens and gives you a glimpse of what lies hidden inside. The walls lean back and to the side, giving the sofa a dynamic character that is interesting from every angle. With its three basic modules, NIU can perfectly adapt to various spaces or needs.

In Catalan «niu» means «nest», and that’s exactly what Hallgeir Homstvedt wanted to create; a zone shielded from the surrounding interior with high walls, an inside filled with soft cushions and a generous depth made to share. NIU has three basic modules; 1,5 seater, 2 seater and 3 seater. By offering these modules with or without armrests, and with or without a back, the opportunities are many. The modules can be combined in different ways and perfectly adapt to various spaces or needs – almost like a bird puts together its nest, piece by piece.
