Shortlisted for furniture design of the year at Dezeen Awards 2019, Brea is a modular seating collection by Barber and Osgerby.
The modular furniture system designed by the London-based studio for outdoor furniture brand Dedon comprises different seating options. Featuring stainless-steel frames that support the upholstered elements, the modules can be assembled to form numerous configurations with different options for positioning a tubular armrest and backrest. Seat cushions are supported by tensioned webbing that stretches across the metal frames.
The collection's unique feature is a pocket sewn into the upholstered cushions that enables them to slip over the looped backrests and side rests. The system fixes the cushions in place while allowing them to be easily removed if required.
