About The Collection

The look is simple and serene, with straight lines converging with discrete, curved details in an understated expression of elegance – designed to exude a sense of tranquility.

Calmo echoes our heritage of sofa expertise in a fresh typology, from Portuguese designer Hugo Passos. A firm believer that “designs must serve their purpose and, more than anything, they should bring you pleasure.” The outcome is an archetypal sofa that embraces our rational approach to forms that follow function – balanced by subtle styling that gives the series even more international appeal.

Referencing our legacy of sofa design, the wellconceived construction of Calmo reflects our decades of knowledge, ensuring the utmost comfort for decades to come. In fact, the seating comfort of Calmo has undergone a thorough analysis, incorporating the most modern ways people use sofas today. The depth of the seat is calibrated to make the sofa conducive for working on a laptop as well as socialising, with enough space to provide a comfortable, soothing experience. At the same time, the sofa offers enough support for a seated conversation, reclining and relaxing.

Calmo is impeccably crafted in line with our sofa philosophy, where the frame features tight up- holstery, while the loose filling cushions add contrast and a casual feel to the formality of the sofa. From a practical perspective, when upholstered in fabric, the cushions have textile on both sides. Adding to the longevity of the look, the cushions can be flipped over for a more even patina over time.

Available in an array of sizes and variants, intrinsic to the Calmo concept is the choice of a chaise longue to incorporate at either end. A comfy chair or ottoman or both, to create a more expansive sofa setting. All kinds of components that you can easily configure together. In keeping with Calmo’s casual yet contemporary, quiet demeanor.

Hugo Passos

Designer

“MY WORK IS ABOUT DAILY LIFE – WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING THINGS IF THEY DON’T GIVE YOU PLEASURE?”

Portuguese-born, London-based designer Hugo Passos designs everyday objects that are familiar and enjoyable, both in form and use. Passos’ work is inspired by the designer’s ongoing interest in the human scale of everyday objects.

Without disregarding the artistic potential of design, Passos stays true to his view that designs must first and foremost serve their purpose and “do what they’re supposed to”. While paying great attention to the materials, structure and ergonomics that influence the use and final synthesis of the design, his approach resonates deeply with Fredericia’s core design values.

After working as a design assistant at Fredrikson Stallard, Hugo Passos opened his own design studio in 2012. His products for Monocle magazine as well as other works have been featured at SaloneSatellite in Milan and the London Design Festival. The Piloti tables are Passos’ first collaboration with Fredericia.
