The new informal
by Fabian Peters | 11/1/2018
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.
Vanity Fair is a replica of the celebrated 904 model that was part of Poltrona Frau's catalogue in 1903 and became an archetype after which modern armchairs have been patterned ever since. It is known the world over for its typical rounded shape and the r
ows of leather-covered nails that add the finishing touch to the seatback and arms. The padding uses both hand-fashioned vegetal horsehair and rubberised horsehair, the seat cushion is filled with goose down. The springing of the seat, back and arms is by
means of biconic steel springs, tied manually and rested on jute belts.A new version of Intervista, produced by Lella and Massimo Vignelli, to respond to a new way of living the working environment and of sharing encounter moments. It is easy to move, wi
th unidirectional front wheels and swivel rear wheels. The larger and deeper seat has an even more comfortable and enveloping feel. The generous dimensions enhance the soft, elegant and linear design. The piece is perfectly in harmony with the Pelle Frau®
upholstery which is available in the Color System range. The frame is in steel with moulded foamed polyurethane padding.
