Gezellig is a dutch word coming from Gezelligheid (n) that, depending on the context, can be translated as a friendly, welcoming, fun, colorful and good, but can also connote belonging, time spent with loved ones, seeing a friend after a long absence, or a union with a general feeling of warmth.

All these concepts want to be embodied in the product gezellig, a new type of seat that is positioned between the mattress and the sofa. It’s main aim is to provide new resting positions and ways to relax more socially and casual. Gezellig has been made to share moments in an environment without television, where human communication is the most important. However, it is also flexible and offers the possibility to be enjoyed in solitude and quiet.
