Neri & Hu’s own product line, ‘neri&hu’, represents a different aesthetic that is rooted in cultural provocation. With an intention to question the potential in “Chinese design”, neri&hu seeks to alternatives to the normative. neri&hu is the reinterpretation of the beauty in the raw material, changing perceptions through what is revealed, examining history and its path, or capturing an ordinary scene in a snapshot.
Sofa Eight is a continuation of Neri&Hu's exploration of an expressive tectonic language. The main supporting element of the sofa is a traditional wood joinery assemblage of stacking members in the X, Y, and Z-axes, pinned together to form a structural base. The cushioned seating utilises memory foam for comfort while maintaining clean, firm lines.
Sofa Eight by Neri&Hu is a modular seating system comprising five key modules, and many possible configurations.
Dimensions vary based on configuration.
Upholstered in a wide selection of De La Espada textiles and leathers. Available in American black walnut, American white oak, or European Ash in a range of finishes.
