A perfect synthesis of grace and refinement. Poltrona Frau pays tribute to Guglielmo Ulrich with the development of the mini armchair he designed in 1937. It was named after the famous architect and interior designer whose work graced many of Milan’s upper-class houses. The armchair is designed, with careful attention to geometry and form, in homage to Ulrich’s inimitable style.
Willy is notable for its gentle, rounded lines and comfortable wraparound seating. Beautiful, diamond stitching marks the upholstery, which is finished in Pelle Frau® leather.
The armrests and backrest are made of steel and seat support is provided by elastic straps. The cushioning is made from moulded polyurethane. The base is made from medium-density particle board with a black finish.
