Brick by KIBISI

KIBISI har designet sofaen Brick for den nye danske møbelproducent Versus.

Serien består af en puf, en stol, og en to og tre personers sofa. KiBiSi satte sig for at lave en sofa med stærke arkitektoniske referencer, udsprunget af at KiBiSi partner Bjarke Ingels ikke rigtig kunne finde den rigtige sofa til sin lejlighed. Udgangspunktet var en klassisk murstensopbygning i forband som udgør pudemønstret. Puderne er bundet sammen og fastgøres med en skrædderknap. Knappen, også designet af KiBiSi, er støbt af fiberbeton – Endnu en arkitektonisk reference.

Et nyt mærke med solide rødder

Versus er et nyt skandinavisk designmærke grundlagt af Peter Barreth. Folkene bag har dog en lang historie og ekspertise indenfor møbelpolstring. Ambitionen er at blande det traditionelle håndværk med up-beat moderne design.

Brick by KIBISI - in english

KiBiSi launches Brick - a couch series for the new Danish design brand, VERSUS KiBiSi has designed the Brick series for Versus. The series consists of a pouf, a chair, 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.” A new brand with a long heritage Versus is a new Scandinavian design brand founded by Peter Barreth. Although versus is an entirely new brand with new designs, the team has a long history of excellence within upholstery. The ambition is to mix this traditional craftsmanship with up-beat contemporary design. Brick and Versus launches October 2010 www.kibisi.com www.versus.as
