Poltrona Frau’s leather-bound furnishings are held in a similar reverence to fine art, and it is celebrating its 110th anniversary in a style that fully embraces that concept. In collaboration with artist Felipe Pantone, known for his colorful avant-garde style, the brand has unveiled an eccentric take on its sumptuous Archibald Armchair.
By using Pelle Frau’s patented leather and dousing it with reds, oranges, yellows, and blues, it almost looks as if Pantone is projecting a heat map onto this luxurious chair’s surface — and we mean that in the best way possible because the result is spectacular. The multi-talented artist even implemented a multi-color chrome base to replace its more subdued, traditional metal composition.
Having served as a benchmark of interior design since hitting the market in 2009, the Archibald Armchair is the epitome of fine Italian craftsmanship and fashion-forward functionality. In addition to the standard-sized chair, the two have collaborated on a miniature take, which the brand has appropriately labeled “a toy for adults,” as it is handcrafted from the same luxurious brand of materials as its large-scale parallel.
Believe it or not, the elemental furnishing’s eye-popping reimagining can be yours upon request. Take a deeper look at the process and have your hand at picking one of these beauties up for your living room, as they are appropriately limited to 110 pieces.
