Instead of the traditional method of sofa manufacturing using wood and springs, the seat cushions are supported by rubber webbing tape. The webbing tape, originally used for the internal structure of the sofa, was brought to the surface and sublimated as a part of the design, which was highly regarded as the most advanced design at the time of its release. The unique yet sophisticated design creates a modern, high-quality space. The two-seat arm sofa is compact, with a width of approximately 160 cm, yet the seating area is spacious and relaxing. The moderate firmness and elasticity provide firm support for the body, so there is no unnecessary strain on the legs and back, and the body does not sink in too deeply, so standing up is also smooth. The upholstery is made in Japan from a high quality, wear-resistant fabric that is also used for furniture in public facilities, etc. Available in five colors, you can choose between the simple, basic NC series and the traditional herringbone pattern of the TRAD series.
