In Chinese ‘zhuang’ means to protect something precious. The collection of Zhuang containers designed by Neri & Hu for Poltrona Frau consists of a series of stackable treasure chests with a minimalist and ultra contemporary design.

The Zhuang containers can be used freely in the various areas of the home or office to store both valuable objects or everyday items.


They consist of two circular and oval stackable boxes covered with a saddle-leather lid. Each of these consists, in turn, of a stack of four trays, which can be pulled out one by one, held together by the brushed aluminium base in matt natural brass. The collection is completed by two large trays in the same shape and a set of three office accessories: a multi-purpose holder, a pen holder with ruler and a working pad. All containers in the Zhuang collection are made from solid Canaletto walnut, carved from a single piece by numerically controlled machinery and finished with a Cuoio Saddle Extra leather belt in the colours Carbone, Cammello or Tortora. The saddle-leather is embellished with very fine stitching with slightly contrasting yarn and the branded Poltrona Frau logo.


Part of the lids of the Zhuang office multi-purpose holder and pen holder is fixed in position to protect the contents while the mobile part is equipped with a metal clip that acts as a handle. A metal support at the base of the pen holder can be used as a ruler. Thanks to magnets inserted in the wood, the ruler remains perfectly in position when it is replaced.

The working pad is made from a double layer of Tortora-coloured saddle-leather. When open it can be used to work on with a laptop, also extending far enough to be used as a mouse pad.  It closes like a book to become an easy-to-transport document holder. It is embellished with metal clips to make it easier to open.
