Basel sofa by Adea charms with a combination of angular shapes, relaxed comfortability and balanced proportions. Upholstered in fabric, the seat of the sofa rests on sleek aluminium legs that give the sofa an airy, hovering character. Feather-filled cushions complement the sofa with natural softness and feeling of luxury.

”The working title for the Basel sofa was ’house wine’. The aim was to design a sofa without grand gestures but with a more refined sense for shape, proportions and comfort that suits a wide range of interior styles”, designers Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle explain. And just like house wine at a fine restaurant, Basel sofa is a reliable and straightforward choice that suits various tastes and makes a great companion for a range of different furniture.

Adea furniture is manufactured in Finland.

Broberg & Ridderstråle

Broberg & Ridderstråle is a design and architecture studio founded by Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle. Both of them are interior architects and designers and both of them graduated from the Konstfack University College of Arts, Crafts and Design, Sweden, in 2006. Mats Broberg and Johan Ridderstråle are creative collaborators based in Stockholm, Sweden, working in a mixed architecture and design practice. 

They strive to add an emotional value to their design which communicates with the user through recognition of symbols and meanings. They often draw inspiration from the everyday life and try to combine a rational approach with a dash of humour and wit. One of the most famous products they designed is Plugged pendant lamp for Muuto. The Plugged pendant lamp plays with the elements most lighting armatures try to hide. It emphasizes how the lamp is “brought to life” thereby giving it character and difference. The space between the shade and the ceiling is highlighted by the pattern of the textile cord - and the placing of the plug on the side gives the lamp a dynamic appearance and brings life to an otherwise static typology. The concave diffuser adds to the freshness with the infinite sensation you get, when looking into the lamp. Broberg & Ridderstråle have received several awards for their designs, including the Elle Interior Design Prize and the Design Plus Award.
