Zhuhai lounge

"Spine Sofa"


The Zhuhai lounge is a custom-made couch, originally designed for a show-room in Zhuhai, China. The design is based on a parametrically driven model that can produce many different versions and allows to change the design in length, with and shape in order to meet the customer's specific wishes. It's made of finest natural leathers exhibiting various surface markings and texture variations and is available in a number of colours.
