Opium beds for communal lounging have been in China since the Tang Dynasty. 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. Designed by neri&hu and manufactured by De La Espada for the neri&hu brand.
