Ziemlich auf Draht

Christophe Pillet, who is skilled at combining French decorative styles with the tradition of design, has also produced Frag's new Sahrai Collection, a series that includes a lounge chair, ottoman and coffee table, inspired by the traditional film producer's armchair. The designer has used the traditional 'X' shape of the chair frame horizontally, as an element that runs through the whole collection. The collection on display at the Furniture Fair is in an elegant matte black finish. The remarkably elegant lounge chair and ottoman are comfortably upholstered with artfully-positioned padding, covered in fine nubuck leather. The back rest and seat on the Sahrai lounge chair are made from a single cushion, shaped over three different heights to mould perfectly to the weight of the body. Another elegant touch is the thin leather upholstered padding on the horizontal part of the chair arm, a detail that adds comfort and prestige. Meanwhile the Sahrai coffee table combines the X shape of the frame and a textured tabletop with an original sand stone effect.
