Designer Khodi Feiz questioned why the arms on armchairs are straight when he created the ‘Bras’ sofa system for Dutch design brand Artifort.
The Bras sofa, which is the french word for arm, “was born from the gesture of an arm on an armchair, angled away and then towards you to follow the natural contour your arms make when sitting.” says Feiz. “At the same time this inspiration creates a distinguished visual statement which is inviting and in turn comfortable. The faceted corners in the sofa embrace you and allow you to sit in a flexible and more casual manner.”
For Bras Feiz developed a unique construction system which works independently between the seat, backrest and armrests, providing a level of flexibility, which in turn provides a great degree of comfort not found in sofas in this genre.
