Jean-Marie Massaud deconstructs and reconstructs the classic dining table chair according to the principles of radical architecture. The JEFF project is launched. Perfectly recognisable primary geometries. A circle for the seat. A cylindrical profile for the backrest. Four intersecting lines for the base. Elements that meet in a new vision. An incredibly modern seat. Almost a sculpture. A noble and sophisticated presence that distinguishes and characterises the space. Clean and distinct forms, soft and precious materials and manual craftsmanship that make it a piece of art.
The backrest can be upholstered entirely in leather or with a leather exterior and fabric interior in adjustable aesthetic and material combinations. The blade-like legs are in titanium painted steel. The padding is rich, enveloping and, at the same time, compact.
The collection includes three highly architectural pieces to which new elements are gradually added in a modular crescendo. From the stool, a refined circumference positioned on top of a stem, to the armchair without armrests to which the cylindrical backrest is added, and through to the armchair with armrests, inserted at the sides like minimalist straight lines.
The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System, Nest, Soul and Century leather, and can be matched with the Poltrona Frau fabrics in different combinations. All stitching is tone on tone and creates a subtle geometric pattern on the back of the backrest. The steel base comes in a fixed version or a 360° swivel version with automatic return to the starting position. Armrests with metal structure, entirely upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather. Seat in birch plywood with polyurethane foam padding. The backrest is made up of two shells in rigid polyurethane with internal padding in polyurethane foam.
