Danish design firm KiBiSi sure was creative when it designed this chair. Andwe love it. It may look like a rolled up bed mattress, but it is actually something between a chair, a couch, and a mattress. All we can say for sure is that the KiBiSi Roulade Chair is extremely comfortable.

The Backstory of the Roulade Chair
“The idea was to make a roll-up and foldable bed”
However, that proved impossible due to very high costs of unwrapping the bed. The team liked how the curled structure looked like, so they made a chair out of it. Of course, the form is the only thing that stayed the same. The “Roulade” chair is made from high-density foam which was cut into a fixed shape.
If you take a closer look, you will see that the chair imitates the buttons which evoke a Chesterfield. It is also upholstered in Hallingdal, which is basically a high-wearing fabric.
The design of this furniture piece is simple, which makes it perfect for any type of home. Also, it comes in all types of colors!
If you like this piece, then you should know that there is also a couch that works with it. KiBiSi launches “Brick”, a right sofa for every type of apartment. The concept started with a brick bond forming the cushion pattern. The cushions were then tied together.
“A contemporary, iconic and humorous character with a cozy and comfortable expression”
Bjarke Ingels, member of KiBiSi considers that a sofa should be a pile of pillows which offer comfort. As a result, the couch meets its purpose perfectly, and it also explores the concept of tectonic bricklaying.
What do you think? Is the Roulade Chair or couch something you would love to have in your modern apartment?
