STILT | Sofá secional By District Eight
Sofá secional de carvalho

Stilt is a collection of relaxing comfort and simplicity.
Its conscious and no-frills design underlines District Eight’s distinctive vision to articulate Vietnamese storied craftsmanship from a contemporary perspective - one that is inspired by European ingenuity, and resonates with people all over the world.
With the sofa and armchair, separate back and seat cushions gently slot into a slender wood platform that comes in either leather or fabric upholstery. Together they’re supported by a sinuous frame, whose seemingly simple structure pays homage to traditional stilt houses found in Northern and Central Vietnam.
That bearing base consists of elegant wood beams and steel bars, laboriously worked on and sturdily unified by recessed joints of discerning precision. Such details also pertain to the collection’s table set, providing support for its solid oak top.
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.
