Ziemlich auf Draht

To expand its seating range this year, Frag has continued its collaboration with Christophe Pillet, whose recent designs were especially well-received. The French designer has created the new Clubby: a club armchair and pouf with rounded contours, inspired by the chairs found in Parisian fumoirs. The proportions and lines of this series make it ideal for public areas and the uses commonly requested by contract clients.
The chair has a cylindrical frame acting as a seat, with a semicircular back, upholstered and enclosed by an enveloping shell on the back. Thanks to a variety of finishes and upholstery, the shell is the main feature of the design, leaving ample room for creative inspiration: saddle leather shell and leather upholstery, single-texture with leather or fabric throughout, or leather on the outside and fabric on the inside. There are also special versions with a shell made from braided leather, ideal for bespoke designs.
Clubby pouf simplifies the lines of this series, again featuring the rounded contours and decorative aspect, and with the same upholstered cylinder and revolving brass base.
