Danish company Skargaarden was founded in 2008 and produces furniture that is designed for leisure. The brand emphasizes that its line of chairs, sofas, tables, and accessories are meant for enjoyment and relaxation, rather than stressful or mundane activities. As a contemporary Scandinavian brand, Skargaarden has its roots in the minimalist Scandinavian furniture from the 1950s and ’60s, especially in its use of bentwood and teak. But the brand is also forward-looking, and designs furniture with its own DNA—it features intricate details and shows its expert craftsmanship without being overly complicated.

Our sites are never grounded, our conditions are never predictable, and our parameters are always in flux; they exist at the edges and transformational zones where infrastructure, geology, cultural habitation, and ecology cohabit at best as a composition of disparate parts, an assemblage. Our research practice essentially searches to define the assemblage in order to reveal the elusive potentialities found within complex systems. emerymcclure architecture practices to contribute to the rich and unique global traditions where sociocultural and physical contexts are entrenched in the way architecture is established and constructed.
