The new informal

Will we still work at desks in future? That was one of the many questions asked at Orgatec 2018 in Cologne. We review the trade fair.
Poltrona Frau returns to its roots and reissues a historical artefact first manufactured in 1924. Ample, deep, welcoming. Designed with a masterly equilibrium between the play of the needle and the leatherwork. It is constructed with the same craftsmanshi
p and attention to detail that has ever been a hallmark of Poltrona Frau. Refined diamond stitching forms a harmonious motif across the backrest while pleated trim softens the armrests. The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather. The frame is in seasoned be
ech and the seat and backrest padding contain hand-tied biconical steel springs attached to jute webbing. Goose down lines the cushions, rubber horsehair and polyurethane foam fill the backrest and manually-shaped vegetable horsehair is used for the arms.
A leather thread finishes the rear backrest. Feet are in beech with a dark walnut finish.
