CAVOUR | Armchair

Leather armchair

Manufacturer Poltrona Frau

THE ICONS Collection
Designed in 1959, the Cavour armchair forms part of a group of products that includes two different models of chair (1960 and 1961) and a games table (1955). The Cavour armchair in particular soon became an iconic object. In March 1960 it appeared at the historic "New designs for Italian furniture" exhibition at the “L’Osservatore delle Arti Industriali” gallery in Milan, a show that laid the foundations of the "Neoliberty" movement.  It was also afforded an honourable mention at the Compasso d’Oro awards in the same year. Initially produced by Sim of Novara, it was added to the Poltrona Frau catalogue in the late 80s. The matching pouf that goes with the Cavour armchair was recently designed on the basis of a prototype produced at the time.
Structure in curved Canaletto walnut veneer with Canaletto walnut finish and curved beech veneer with lacquered glossy black polyester finish. Backrest and seat shell in beech with polyurethane foam padding upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather and raised ton-sur-ton piping. The structure of the pouf is in multiply birch with shaped polyurethane foam padding and polyester wadding. Upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather .
