This sofa employs one of the simplest production processes of any structured and refined sofa in production today. The design is a result of countless compromises, experiments, and simplifications to distill the assembly to 24 steps that can be done within the course of about 6 hours by anyone that has the right tools and enthusiasm. The 26 pieces of lightweight aluminum framing can be completely taken apart and re-assembled in 30 minutes for easy moving. Parts for this difficult to assemble design cost on average 700 USD.
