Opium beds for communal lounging have been in China since the Tang Dynasty, when opium smoking became an accepted social activity which necessitated a comfortable and presentable piece of furniture for receiving guests. Neri&Hu took this historic typology and updated it to create Platform, a contemporary sofa with a simple profile. Deep arms form two useful shelves, as well as side tables for books or a cup of tea.The solid wood frame cradles our tired bodies on a lazy Sunday morning, as addicts to our newspapers and coffee instead of the opium in imperial China. Designed by neri&hu and manufactured by De La Espada for the neri&hu brand.
