Dezeen Showroom: Swedish architecture and design firm Claesson Koivisto Rune has created Abisko, a collection of gently rounded seating for True Design.

The range includes daybeds, chairs and sofas and is named Abisko after a national park set within the Arctic Circle in Sweden.

The park is famous for its view of a U-shaped valley known as Lapporten or gateway to Lapland.

The collection references Abisko's natural topography

This topography and the area's natural colour palette informed the earthy hues and soft, rounded silhouettes of the seating collection by True Design.

"From the name of an immense natural park to the name of an object, they share the same colours, passion for natural shapes and knowledge of materials," the brand explained.

Abisko seating features a solid wood frame, varnished steel legs and fabric or leather upholstery in muted hues.

According to Claesson Koivisto Rune, the collection was designed completely remotely due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

"This has meant no physical meetings between us as designers and True Design as developers and manufacturers have been possible," the firm explained.

"For anyone with experience in the design process, it is a remarkable feat to develop a strong visual and tactile product under such circumstances."
