BASEL sofa L220cm

Designer : Broberg and Ridderstrale


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.

Broberg & Ridderstråle likes to look at history and intertwine it with contemporary life to create something rooted in tradition, but not retro. Like Swedese's round table Divido - made entirely of wood, modern-looking and a subtle nod to Yngve Ekström's classic Lamino. Mats Broberg was born in 1974 in Stockholm and Johan Ridderstråle in Lund in 1979. They met at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design where they both studied interior design. Many joint projects, from their graduation piece to an offer to exhibit in Japan, naturally opened the way to their joint office. Broberg & Ridderstråle are based in Stockholm and work as much with architecture as with furniture and product design. The office is represented in the permanent collections of the National Museum in Stockholm and has been recognised by, amongst others, the British magazine Wallpaper and Swedish Elle Decoration.


A first class product is a whole whose parts are in balance. The design gives the furniture something extra and creates a product which either fascinates with its beauty or offers an exceptional function. To create a good product, materials of high quality as well as an uncompromising attitude is needed in every link in the chain: furniture frame making, padding and upholstery work. The seams, the stitching and the softness tell much about the product, but its true character doesn’t come out until you have tested it out and used it for a while. The soft piece of furniture provides flexibility and support in the right places. You can feel the structure embedded in the furniture when sitting on it. The quality that remains invisible to us comes from craftsmanship and pride. Since the beginning of its activity Adea has manufactured functional products of high quality which also are realized practically. The Adea products are developed and improved with Ostrobothnian pride and toughness during the company’s twenty-year history. The family owned company’s determined policy in making its own collection has borne fruit – we are known of our timeless and contemporary furniture.
