Poltrona Frau DU 55 armchair: Poltrona Frau revisits the work of a forgotten genius of design to introduce a 1950’s icon to the contemporary panorama. The rounded geometries, the study of the thicknesses and padding, and the relationship between full and empty spaces led Gastone Rinaldi to design a chair with a strong personality. It communicates coherence, completeness and elegance straight away. The curved shell and sleek feet are a guarantee of the stability and comfort of this relaxing and welcoming chair. Steel structure with moulded polyurethane foam padding. Elastic belts for the springs of the seat and the backrest. Feet in three different finishes: ash in a teak veneer with endpins in antique-finish brass, black or chrome. Upholstery in Pelle Frau® leather or removable fabric.
Pelle Frau® SC - Color System Frau®. Pelle Frau® leather means colour, too. The planned colours of the Colour System: a co-ordinated range of 90 different nuances of colours, characterised by the ease with which the various colours can be matched up. In turn, for those who prefer the artificial vocabulary of colour, this allows for the creation of harmonious combinations of the shades both among different pieces of furniture and within the same object. Poltrona Frau has achieved the perfect balance of natural material and surface dressing treatments thanks to its specific technical research and vast experience. Passing time will confer elegance on Color System by Pelle Frau®, with its interesting sensory profile, resistance characteristics and for its excellent performance during use, as well as offering easy maintenance.
Pelle Frau® Soul. Pelle Frau® Soul, the excitement of contact. The very essence of the material. Warmth, softness, the aroma of natural leather, in a timeless, sensorial experience. Warm, deep colours in all natural tones. Pelle Frau® Soul is an aniline-dyed full grain leather with no surface finishing. It stands out for its transparency and full colours that reveal, thanks to its natural photo-sensitive characteristics, a depth of tone and warmth, the softness and naturalness of a live material. These points of prestige, blended with the natural imperfections of the leather, guarantee uniqueness and quality. Only a select group of valuable raw bovine hides of European origin with a limited number of flaws (scars, few pores, wrinkles, insect bites, etc.) can become Pelle Frau® Soul leather. Only 10 out of 100 hides allow their natural features to shine through and become Pelle Frau® Soul leather. The more transparent the leather, the more it will improve over time, ageing in a dignified manner. Because no leather is equal to another, and every product upholstered with Pelle Frau® Soul leather will be unique. The Pelle Frau® Soul leather characteristics make it unsuitable for exposure to direct sunlight or heat sources, and accidental stains will be difficult to remove. We advise using a soft, dry cloth for cleaning.
Fabric upholstery. Poltrona Frau Fabric. The Poltrona Frau fabric collection can be divided into two categories (Fabric A and Fabric B), which correspond to two different price bands. The products upholstered in fabric are only those for which the price list states the specific rate.
