Curved tubular steel and wood. A minimalist project. The T 904 bench, a historic piece revisited by Poltrona Frau, is a fine example. The structure is painstakingly designed in tubular steel with a black finish. The seat is minimalist, comprising of a board of poplar plywood with teak-stained ash wood veneer, which can be completed with three cushions placed simply on the wooden surface if desired. A piece of furniture which, with its clean lines and use of tubular steel, evokes 1950’s design with its own originality.
The cushions are padded with polyurethane foam and dacron. The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather or removable fabric.
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
