Design Khodi Feiz, 2014
Upholstery, steel base
Made in The Netherlands by Artifort

"In a way, I like to see Artifort not as a company in the business of making furniture, but in the business of making history." -Khodi Feiz

The Bras invites you to make yourself comfortable, and embraces you. Reclining and taking it easy, or sitting cosily in a corner, enjoy the relaxation and comfort offered by this beautiful, sleek sofa. One striking feature of the Bras is its unique armrests. The natural form of your arm when gently resting it on an armrest inspired Khodi Feiz to produce this design. After all, your arm doesn't bend at a perfect right angle; it bends at different joints in an angular curve, just like the Bras armrest.

The seat, backrest, and armrests are upholstered separately and only connected to each other at a later stage. This emphasizes the sleek curves of the sofa even more, and gives the design a light and unique character. The optional cushions give the sofa a playful accent, and the footstool offers space for outstretched legs or on its own.

Khodi Feiz was born in Iran. He graduated from Syracuse University in Industrial Design. After working for Texas Instruments Design Center and later joining Philips Design in the Netherlands, he founded feiz design studio with graphic designer Anneko Feiz - van Dorssen. They specialize in a variety of design fields. Their work has received numerous awards and has been featured in exhibitions and publications worldwide.

The upholstery and powder-coated base for the footstool are available in a variety of options. Bras is also offered as a 2, 2,5 and 3-seater sofa.

The foundations of Artifort were laid by Jules Wagemans. In 1890, he set up business as an upholsterer in Maastricht. His son, Henricus Wagemans, expanded the company into a furniture factory, which had a showroom in Amsterdam by the end of the 1930’s and was already well known nationally. The economic recession of the nineteen thirties forced H. Wagemans & Van Tuinen, as the furniture company was then known, to create a distinctive profile. The emphasis came to lie on functionality, comfort, and quality combined with aesthetically pleasing design and an innovative use of materials. The new brand name became Artifort, derived from the Latin word 'ars' meaning “art or knowledge”, and 'fortis' meaning “strong or powerful.”
