The Shanghai Sofa is a rare, Limited Edition sofa. The cover is made by the Artist Cristian Zuzunga. He collaborated in 2008 with Ligne Roset Ligne Roset and designed an exclusive print to upholster key furniture pieces to mark the 150 anniversary of Ligne Roset.
Born in 1978 to a Catalan mother and Peruvian father, Cristian was brought up in a multicultural household that instilled in him a strong sense of curiosity and a desire to explore the world around him. Cristian’s work is broad in scope and includes print, letterpress, photography, sculpture, textile and furniture design. He founded Zuzunaga in 2009 as a vessel through which to explore his many creative interests. His designs are informed by the psychology of colour, architecture and the urban environment, nature, Eastern and Western philosophy, alchemy, anthropology, sociology and the psychology of Carl Gustav Jung. While his work initially explored the idea of duality, his practice has since evolved to embody the synergy of opposing forces.

French seating designer Michel Ducaroy (1925-2009) is best known for his iconic, Pop Art-inspired Togo Sofa produced by high-end design brand Ligne Roset.
Ducaroy grew up surrounded by industrial design; his family owned a furniture factory that fitted the interiors of both private clients and ocean liners built at ports in Normandy. He studied sculpture at the École Supérieure Nationale des Beaux-Arts in Lyon—a specialization that can be seen in the distinctive silhouettes of Ducaroy’s later design work.
