Shanghai-based ziinlife has been designing and producing beautiful mid-century furniture since 2013. Featuring easy, uncomplicated lines, ziinlife’s latest collection – The Playful Angles – is the perfect example of mid-century furniture done right.
The six pieces that together were presented as The Playful Angles collection take on new characteristics when viewed from other angles, thus being considered unique and exclusive pieces of furniture. Keep scrolling and take a look at them!
1/2 COFFEE TABLE
The multifunctional 1/2 Coffee Table pulls apart to reveal that it’s actually two tables in one. They’re either together, where one table slides over the other with their slanted edges meeting, or separate for additional table space. The table includes two circular trays that can be used individually or simply leave them on the tabletop for flat surface space.
The sofa comes with an adjustable collar that flips up to hold one of the extra pillows it comes with when you want extra neck support, or flips down for an extra added design detail. The pillow can then be used for back support or simply as a throw pillow. The sofa comes as a 1-seater, 2-seater, or 3-seater and in three colors – peach, mustard, and charcoal.
This is a simple design that allows you to comfortably store all your goods. With a slightly tiled handle, you’ll find it makes it easier to lift and carry. The sides also have uneven edges and that’s so when the box is pushed against the wall, your fingers still have room to slip down and grab the handle.
THE CLOUD CABINET
The Cloud Cabinet merges a cube and a barrel with storage for taller items, like umbrellas, at the bottom and books on the upper shelf. The design references a tree that could grow really tall and reach high above the cloud. The indentions on the top mimic the rings of a tree or orbits in the universe, showing how growth can be limitless, while providing a space for your smaller objects without them falling on the floor.
SMALL WORLD TABLE
No more head bumps! Small World Table is more than just a modern dining table as it also focuses on our child’s perspective. Now, when they look up, they’ll see a padded and tufted cushion underneath the tabletop that will prevent all head bumps during playtime.
CAPRICIOUS WALL SHELF
