Shanghai Tip Sofa

Designer: Patricia Urquiola

    Sophisticated yet comforting, understated luxury with a vaguely Oriental feel. Simple and minimal when in the standard position; supremely comfortable when the backrest, which has a tilting mechanism, is raised. The chrome-steel or black painted tube legs are reminiscent of the coloured wooden sticks used for playing Mikado (or pick-up-sticks, known as Shanghai in Italian). Comfort is an intrinsic feature and achieved through down-filled seat cushions upholstered in clean, neutral shades which contrast perfectly with the splashes of colour provided by the throw cushions and lacquered side tables in plum, emerald green, paprika and lacquer red. Seat in wood upholstered in stress-resistant polyurethane foam with differentiated densities and polyester fibre. Back and arm in injected flame-retardant foam with structure andreclining mechanism in steel upholstered in polyester fibre. Feet in steel with chrome finish or varnished matte black. Glides in polypropylene. The seat cushions are in goose down with pad in polyurethane foam. The back and optional cushions are in goose down or, on request, in polyester fibre. The Shanghai Tip collection covers are removable.
