Roulade is a meeting between generations and genres, a meeting between mattress and Chesterfield, chair and couch.
Roulade is a Swiss Roll turned sofa – a contemporary, iconic and humorous character with a cozy and comfortable expression. Bjarke Ingels, Larsen & Jens Skibsted, design collective known as KiBiSi  have recently launched Roulade, skilfully bringing together the qualities of a basic high-density foam cut into a fixed shape reminiscent of a rolled up mattress, and upholstered in Kvadrat’s classic Hallingdal. Whilst oversized buttons bring up the impression of the traditional Chesterfield.

Their work has resulted in a innovative expression of material use and creation of iconic and humorous character of a new plump 1,5 pax sofa, designed for laid back hangout.

Hallingdal was designed by Nanna Ditzel in 1965. Since when it has become as famous for its durability as for its rich colour palette. Today more than forty-five years later it remains one of Kvadrat’s best-selling products and has earned its place as a design classic.
