Poltrona Frau crosses the traditional divide between outdoor and indoor furniture, offering the possibility of defining any outdoor context, from the more usual open-air or poolside to the decks of yachts and ships, to the more confined spaces, such as rooftops, balconies, terraces and winter gardens, that we so long to inhabit today. With the aim of creating surroundings that evoke emotions and atmospheres to fine-tune our frequencies to those of nature.

Just as Poltrona Frau, in its long company history, has skilfully interpreted the themes of comfort and tailoring in well-rounded environments - from residential to office, public spaces to transport interiors, thanks to the three divisions Residential Interiors, Custom Interiors and Interiors in Motion - it now applies its ability to reflect the needs and aspirations of contemporary living to the outdoors. An area that Poltrona Frau approaches with a precise and personal twist, 'boundless living', with consistent and versatile collections of furniture and accessories characterised by cleverly resolved technical details, quality cabinet-making and the ability to choose the best materials and craft them to the best effect.

THE NEW COLLECTIONS

With Roberto Lazzeroni, Ludovica + Roberto Palomba and Kensaku Oshiro, long-standing designers in the industry, Poltrona Frau has developed products that are easily recognisable for the sobriety of their style and the undeniable quality of their workmanship - solid wood, steel and textiles, treated with the very same care and skill as leather. In these collections, the technical performance of the materials, which usually defines the image of outdoor furniture, is concealed in favour of a familiar, contemporary image of a place where you can feel good and be in harmony.

The new collections catch the eye and tickle the fancy, giving a feeling of calm and lightness. Solaria, designed by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, develops the lounge area in greater detail; The Secret Garden, designed by Roberto Lazzeroni, explores the theme of dining, the lounge dining area and the relaxation area; Sparkler provides ambient lighting. All of them express the potential for versatile use that goes beyond, without distorting, the traditional types of furniture, playing with volumes and exact proportions that evoke, above all, the idea of comfort.

Although autonomous in terms of style, the collections interact both in their complementary functions and in their chromatic and material references, enriched by a wide range of accessories such as cushions, carpets, baskets and tables. They address the technical specifications and complexities underlying outdoor living by inspiring personal and non-conventional use. To experience life without borders.

THE CHOICE OF MATERIALS

Poltrona Frau's outdoor collections are designed with efficiency, durability and waste reduction at the forefront. These choices have led to extreme simplification of the components and their easy disassembly, both for ease of use and environmental sustainability.

The materials used are certified and approved for outdoor use. At the heart of this is an uncompromising choice of quality, even in the hidden parts. The structures are made of powder-coated stainless steel or solid teak in a natural finish. The wood is FSC certified, which indicates products containing wood from forests managed correctly and responsibly, according to strict environmental, social and economic standards. And last but not least, the upholstery is made of absorbent materials, the threads are woven from polypropylene fibres and the fabrics are made of acrylic or polypropylene yarns. They are soft to the touch, with a warm, textured "feel" , some developed in partnership with Loro Piana Interiors, reminiscent of indoor upholstery.

The choice of colours and textures in the upholstery fabrics is designed to match the materials and colours of the furniture and to create echoes and contrasts with other accessories such as metal tables, decorative cushions, rugs and baskets. Four colour families have been developed: from colours inspired by sand and stone (Shoreline) to tones reminiscent of nautical style (Ocean Waves), from the hues of sunsets (Above Sunset) to the colours of Italian gardens (Scent of Green).

Poltrona Frau's outdoor collections will be on display from the end of September in the flagship store in Shanghai, during Design Week and Expo 2020 Dubai and at Art Basel in Miami in December 2021. They will be on sale at selected retailers.
