Chair Curve

CURVE is a complementary seating collection. A perfect addition to the more saggy TV sofa and living room. Just right for a relaxed conversation, or to open the laptop, or read a book. “I am particularly fond of the contrast between angular and round, between hard and soft,” says Willenz. “The steel frame of the CURVE sofa is very simple, and quite square too. That is in stark contrast to the thick and bendy cushion that covers it.” This typology and design makes it easy for CURVE to adapt to its surroundings. “I can see the sofa in both a very playful environment, at home, in the living room, in a bedroom, home-office, or even in the more contract office situations.” The CURVE 1-seater is available with and without armrests. The sofas are accompanied by a side table with a marble or steel tabletop and an ottoman to further enhance seating comfort.

Serax Philosophy is to look for beauty everyday, “to bring the good things that make life worth living, the things that create a home that inspires happiness”, to offer products that have soul. Every collection is crafted traditionally.
