Architectural sofa designed by Japanese architect Shigeru Uchida. This spectacular sofa with die cast aluminum legs was in production for only a short while in 1995. The thick light blue/grey buffalo leather is patinated from 25 years of careful use giving it that great vintage presence. Very rare piece.
