BR 02 sofa bed

Martin Visser   |  1960

Design icon and eye opener: the BR 02 sofa bed by Martin Visser. Designed in 1960 and has not been out of production for a day since. Because of the clear construction and timeless design language, this design is made to transcend generations! In one single movement, the sofa can be converted into a single sofa bed, ideal for the creation of an extra sleeping place.

The BR 02 sofa has a round tubular frame, matt chrome plated or black epoxy coated, and many possibilities in the upholstery department. Due to the sleek shapes of the design we recommend a stretchable fabric such as wool, the best way to show off the shape. The sofa can also be upholstered in leather. Because leather is not elastic, space remains in the upholstery. Whereas an elastic fabric returns to its original shape, leather can crease.

Reupholstering BR 02 sofa bed
The BR 02 sofa bed breathes sustainability: now that recycling is an ever-growing theme in the (design) world, Martin Visser appears to have been a real forerunner. Thanks to the separate elements, the sofa bed can easily be reupholstered. With reupholstering, and possibly renewal of the interior and suspension, a BR 02 will last for years and both the look and the seating comfort will be like new again!
