With its sleek design reminiscent of the Brutalist architecture movement, the ‘Brutus’ collection (pictured) sits amid a serene Japanese garden nestled within the heart of Ibiza.

The Brutus dining chair, designed by the ingenious duo, Kristian Sofus Hansen & Tommy Hyldahl, anchors the tranquility of this idyllic setting, with its arresting silhouette effortlessly blending into the aesthetic panorama. 

The Brutus Series

Inspired by the Brutalist architecture movement of the mid-20th century, the Brutus collection comprises a dining chair, a lounge chair, a stool and a coffee table cast in lightweight fiber concrete, creating a unique surface texture increasing mobility.

Each piece is handpainted to create a textured, unique surface. Emphasising the fine balance between sharp architectural lines and a somewhat softer curve in the back and armrest, the Brutus collection is sculptural statement pieces with a compelling seating comfort.

The story of 101 Copenhagen dates back to 2017 when two designers, Kristian Sofus Hansen and Tommy Hyldahl, decided to embark on a journey together. The duo wanted to create a brand that fused traditional craftsmanship with modern design, producing pieces that stood the test of time.
