OCT 2010 / 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.”
OCT 2010 / KiBiSi wins Danish Design Prize 2010/11

Many competing products are technically complicated headphones in high-tech design. This product represents a different approach: AIAIAI’s design is no-nonsense design with a low-tech expression. The product is down-to-earth, almost humorous and playful and offers the users an opportunity to customize the product. The headphones do not pretend to be more than they are.
