Poltrona Frau Montera chair: The “Montera” chair, the common denominator in the designer’s work is the lightness of form and, above all, the sensory charm of leather. The internal part of the shell is covered in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System. In elegant contrast the external surface is in Cuoio Saddle Extra. Two different materials that enhance each other when sewed together with clean-cut edges. On the back of the seat the visible stitching traces a delicate motif and hides the zipper which, like an impeccable tailor-made suit, is used to close the cover. The seat is also available in a version completely covered in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System. Shell in moulded curved beech plywood. Padding in polyurethane foam. Four-leg base in Wengé-stained solid ash wood.
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.
Saddle leather: Both in the house and office, hide is subject to the requirements of daily use and temperature changes. In the Poltrona Frau analysis and experimentation laboratory, scrupulous testing was carried out, while continuous exchanges with the tannery took place, before reaching a definition of Saddle leather. Dimensional stability and a predisposition for gluing have been considered essential, together with the warm clouding of the surface, and constant, durable quality. The base of the material is European adult bovine skin, worked with natural techniques, and finished with a special dye, in order to limit damage from accidental scratches. Saddle leather is stable in light, and resists stains well. Any small scars or roughness demonstrate the authenticity of the material and its natural origins.
