Monica FÃ¶rster took her inspiration from the large circular forms of woven straw typical of Lapp handicrafts in designing this welcoming pouf, gifted with naturalsimplicity. It is upholstered in Pelle FrauÂ® leather. Wide segments slightly overlapping eachother create a sophisticated decorative effect. The expert workmanship develops from the centre of the seat, which transforms into the heart of a striking, outwardlyradiating movement. The internal frame is made from plywood and it is padded in polyurethane foam.
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
