INDUSTRY+ SOFT CHAIR by Nathan Yong, from industryplus.com.sg Clad in a super-slim layer of marble and fabricated by MM Galleri, this chair is one of the visual highlights of the Eclecticism collection that Industry+ plans to present later this year. “Soft defies our expectations of marble furniture with its fluid yet strong curves,” says Ee.
