A new interpretation of the bar stool. The footrest extends out from the seat, and the soft disc that forms the seat, would seem to float above this American walnut wood stool. The result is a stool that can only be described as fascinating, made with materials and finishes that have been chosen for their durability. Seat upholstered in Pelle FrauÂ® leather. Chrome-finished steel base and footrest. This swivelling stool is also available in a height-adjustable version.
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
