Brick sofa by KiBiSi for versus

July 11th, 2011 by retail design blog

KiBiSi has designed the Brick series for versus. The series consists of a pouf, a chair, an armchair, and a two and three seater. KiBiSi set out to make a sofa with strong architectural references since KiBiSi partner Bjarke Ingels couldn’t really find the right architect’s sofa for his apartment. The point of departure was a classic brick bond forming the cushion pattern. The cushions are tied together and fixed with a tailor quality button. The button, also designed by KiBiSi, is molded of fiber concrete – Yet another architectural reference.

Bjarke Ingels of KiBiSi says: “What is a sofa but a pile of pillows for maximum comfort? Turning the habitual modularity of sofa design into a virtue, the Brick explores the tectonic of bricklaying to stack sandbag like cushions into architecture for comfort.”

Materials:
Arm section: Polyurethane foam structure and chambered cushion padding.
Back section: Polyurethane foam structure and chambered cushion padding.
Seat section: Polyurethane foam structure and chambered cushion padding.
Base section: Belted wooden construction with polyurethane foam structure and chambered cushionpadding.
Buttens: Fibrebeton butten and a 8 mm polyester robe.
Legs: Small adjustable legs.
