Khodi Feiz designed the uniquely contoured Bras 2 seat, 2.5 seat and 3 seat sofas for Artifort in 2014. The ergonomically advanced sofa places a strong emphasis on the human form and clearly challenges more conventional design parameters. This is evidenced in the construction of the Bras armrest sections and how they conform to the natural arc of the arm when seated. The Bras sofa design acknowledges that the arm does not bend at a perfect right angle; it bends at different joints in an angular curve. The exceptional structural composition of the armrests translates into greater comfort and increased support for the user. The seat, backrest and armrests are upholstered separately and connected at a later stage in the production process. This further emphasizes the sleek curves of the sofa and gives the design a light and airy overall balance. An expanded assortment of powder coats for the frame and leg sections can be utilized to create a wide range of striking visual compositions.

Khodi Feiz is an industrial designer who was born in Iran and grew up in the USA. A graduate of Syracuse University in New York, he moved to the Netherlands in 1990 to work together with graphic designer Anneko Feiz-van Dorsen, where they specialize in the fields of product design, furniture design, graphic design, and strategic design for companies such as Alessi, Artifort, Hernam Miller, Offecct, Nike and Nokia. Feiz's work has received numerous international design awards and has been featured in exhibitions and publications worldwide. Khodi Feiz on 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. I strongly believe in lasting relationships where designer and producer have time to understand each others' potentiality. This is true now more than ever as progress is measured in fleeting instances as opposed to depth and quality. It is precisely this relationship Artifort has neutered throughout the decades starting with legends such as Pierre Paulin, Kho Liang Ie, and Geoffrey Harcourt, and still continuing today with talented contemporary designers like Patrick Norguet, Jasper Morrison, and Richard Hutten."
