Sectional fabric sofa with removable cover



Design Year

Simple.‎ Gorgeous.‎ Luxuriously comfortable.‎ Endlessly adaptable.‎ That’s BREA, the modular outdoor lounge system by Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby.‎ Produced at the highest standards, the upholstered sections look and feel permanent, although they can be removed at a moment’s notice.‎ They literally slip on over backrests, side rests and seating.‎ And of course, all materials used are suitable not only for use indoors, but also out.‎ That’s why, in addition to its beauty, comfort and versatility, BREA offers unprecedented practicality.‎


For Barber & Osgerby, the concept of BREA derives from their belief that outdoor furniture should receive the same attention to detail they give their indoor designs.‎ Modular sofa systems were typology that, in their view, was particularly ripe for reinvention out of doors.‎ Inspired by the challenge, the designers sought to create a system that would not only allow upholstered elements to be removed, but that would look beautiful with or without them.‎

BREA is characterized by an unparalleled simplicity, quality and comfort that begins with its innovative tubular frame structure.‎ Three stainless steel ‘loops’, one each for the single-seater, two-seater and three-seater modules, form the basis of the system.‎ Together with a tubular armrest, a tubular backrest and five cleverly designed universal castings in aluminum, the loops allow for an endless variety of lounging configurations.‎

By reducing elements and eliminating complexity, Barber & Osgerby were able to focus on quality, from the perfection of the universal castings to the comfort of the cushions and upholstery.‎ To support the cushions, they opted for belts of tensioned webbing.‎ The result is even greater comfort, and, when the upholstery is removed, a beautiful graphic solution that meets the designers’ famously high aesthetic standards.‎ For added practicality, the system is light enough to be repositioned with ease.‎

“There were many notable challenges for this collection,” the designers explain.‎ “It had to be intelligent, adaptable and completely modular without compromising luxury or comfort.‎ That’s why so much time and effort was spent on reducing complexity and caring for every detail.‎ ”
