Brick

Architecture for comfort

The Brick series for Versus consists of a chair and a pouffe, as well as both a two- and three-seater sofa. KiBiSi set out to make a sofa with strong architectural references, since KiBiSi partner Bjarke Ingels couldn’t 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 from fiber concrete as yet another architectural reference.

“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.”
