A new interpretation of District Eight’s signature forms and materials, the collection eloquently captures the beauty of design and the mood of modern-day living in an ever-changing world.
Graduating from the ENSCI (Paris) in 1995, Toan Nguyen pursued his training in Barcelona with Alberto Lievore, moving to Milan in 1996, where not long after he took over as head of Antonio Citterio’s design department, with whom, for nearly ten years he was to sign lines for, among others, Axor-Hansgrohe, B&B Italia, Flos, Iittala, Kartell, Technogym, and Vitra. In 2009 he founded his own studio in Milan, subsequently embarking on a series of successful collaborations with several major brands in high-quality industry and fine craftmanship in Europe, North America, and Asia, on furniture, lighting, ceramics, as well as on technological products.
Soft, spacious, and instantly inviting, the Stilt sofa is a modular system that can be easily adapted to settings of any style and varied sizes. With balanced proportions between its extensive, streamlined platform and the padded, enriching cushions on top, the sofa essentially encapsulates the European sense of modern design, while also adding a touch of authentic Asian influence, as seen through its wood-based frame and additional smaller cushions for the armrests.
A delicate balance between understated clarity and intuitive elegance, the Stilt armchair is outfitted with enveloping cushions that relax the body along the line of an ergonomically reclined platform, while providing tactile comfort thanks to their minute construction.
