The Objects — Zhuang
Neri & Hu
In Chinese, the word 'zhuang' means to guard something precious. The collection of Zhuang containers, designed by Neri & Hu, consists of a series of small treasure chests with a minimalist and ultra contemporary design.
All containers in the Zhuang collection are made from solid Noce Canaletto (Canaletto walnut), carved from a single piece by numerically controlled machinery, and finished with a Cuoio Saddle Extra leather belt in the colours Carbone (Carbon) and Cammello (Camel). The saddle-leather is embellished with very fine stitching, usually seen in leather goods, with slightly contrasting yarn and the branded Poltrona Frau logo.
