Lay down your head

Danish design and Arabic cultural heritage form a beautiful union in Fredericia Furniture's new Dekka daybed, a work that features both clean lines and intricate ornamentation. Investing in Fredericia Furniture's new daybed, Dekka, is almost like buying
a work of contemporary art. The seat features a beautiful hexagonal pattern that gives Dekka an artistic style that is entirely its own. Thanks to its unique appearance, Dekka will add character to any room - while also providing soft and comfortable sea
ting. Dekka, which means "a seat for more than one person", arose through an encounter of contrasts. Soft and hard, light and dark, ornamentation and minimalism, and of course beauty and function. The piece was created by FurnID, and the three designers
choose to blend elements of the Danish design tradition with details stemming from Arabic culture. On account of its unique, elegant pattern, the designers refer to the striking piece as "decorative furniture". "The asymmetrical hexagon can be repeated
infinitely, creating a dynamic pattern. The Arab world has always viewed symmetry as divine: the more stringent the symmetry, the closer to God. But Dekka was made for people, not gods, and when it comes to people, nothing is predictable or symmetrical.
The asymmetry represents imperfection and human nature," explains FurnID's Bo Strange.
