The armchair is made up of structural elements whose represent elements of great aesthetic value. The steel supports with a Ruthenium finish combine great visual lightness with extreme sturdiness. The cushions, supported by a visible weave of leather straps, are upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather and embellished, at the center, by an elegant metal detail in a lengthened form that recalls the leg finish. Padding in polyurethane foam of various densities and polyester wadding. On the back of the armchair the seat and backrest supporting frame is intentionally visible. In the same color as the cushions to extol the overall harmony of the composition, strips of leather are attached to center of the belts using a special technical insert that increases their resistance. Another decorative element is the micro-perforated leather strap that runs right along the edges of the backrest and seat cushions. Upholstery 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
