Sensations of poise and harmony and a well-tempered design free from overdominating elements. The alternation between leather and wood creates measured graphic effects, especially behind the backrest, where a curved wooden panel is grafted elegantly into the rear legs. The frame is made entirely from solid oak, with the back panel in curved multilayer beech and an oak veneer. Seat springs are made with elastic webbing and the padding is in polyurethane foam. It is upholstered with invisible stitching in Pelle Frau® leather.
Poltrona Frau is a furniture-maker founded in 1912 by Sardinian-born Renzo Frau in Turin, Italy, headquartered since the early 1960s in Tolentino, Italy and specializing in leather seating for interior and automotive applications. The company name combines the Italian word for armchair, "Poltrona" and "Frau, the last name of its founder.
Noted for their exhaustive quality standards, the company uses a 21-step leather tanning process where the full-grain leather is dyed through, so a surface scratch won’t reveal a lining underneath. 95% of the company's products are made by hand.
In 2004, Poltrona Frau acquired noted Italian furniture company Cappellini, and the Poltrona Frau Group now includes brands Poltrona Frau, Cappellini, Cassina, Alias, Nemo Lighting, Ceramica Flaminia and Fish Design
