Basset’s sculptural language is simple and clear. There are just two elements – a horizontal “pillow” for a seat and a vertical “duvet” at the back that wraps around the seat, embracing it from the sides.
Upholstery details – marked piping is used to accentuate its shape in a natural way, giving it an easily recognizable design “signature”.
Basset doesn’t demand much space and fits easily into smaller rooms.
Basset is constructed and produced following the finest traditions of craftsmanship for this type of furniture.
Fabric: Hallingdal 65 and Coda 2 by Kvadrat.
ISKOS — BERLIN Design is a partnership of Boris Berlin and Aleksej Iskos.
The company works within the fields of industrial, furniture and graphic design. The firm was only established in late 2010, but Boris and Aleksej have been working together for a number of years. In 1987, Boris co-founded Komplot Design, where Aleksej was employed as an assistant for more than 11 years. This long and fruitful cooperation has allowed them to develop a shared philosophy of design.
In their own words:
”We wanted to design a compact but comfortable “family” of sofas that harked back to classic soft furniture styles – especially to the post WW2 period”.
