A highly customizable low modular sofa, armless and backless, Shanghai sports a minimalist look with legless floor skimming seat cushions, and optional moveable weighted back cushions. Made up of modular sections 100 or 120 cm deep in a variety of widths, this all rounder allows to create conventional straight sofas that can seat 2, 3, 4 people or companies of 5, 6, 8, 10 and more. That's not all. Shanghai can come as a small or extra large corner sofa, a double corner sofa, a panoramic sofa, an L-shaped or U-shaped sectional, a double sided centrepiece for an open plan living room. All of them can parade a wide range of fabric, velvet and leather colours, including two-tone or multi-coloured styles.
Seats can be completed with mobile backrests that can be placed in any position, available in two models: non-slip weighted cushions or free-standing iron sheet structure with additional loose feather-filled pillows.
With this modular sofa creativity is the star that will allow you to play with space and function. It will make you free to create your own design solution tailored to your very specific needs.
Shanghai is perfect as a sofa in the middle of the room. With this configuration the piece is transformed into a multipurpose seating area where you can lay back and relax, have a nap, cuddle with your family, binge watch your favourite series, throw a cocktail party. Multipurpose also because Shanghai not only offers modular seats, but also integrates side coffee tables and armrests with built in bookcases.
