TIMES LOUNGE | Leather armchair By Poltrona Frau
Leather armchair with armrests
The design principles that made the Times bed unique are revisited in the Times Lounge armchair to create a timeless seat which combines an advanced construction technique with understated and mellow contemporary aesthetics. Designed by Spalvieri & Del Ciotto for Poltrona Frau, the Times Lounge armchair has a sophisticated and ultra-light structure and a cover which naturally assumes its forms like a tailored suit, making it soft and welcoming. The materials blend together and amalgamate, their functional role lost in order to create a highly distinctive singular image. The soft wadding embraces the elegant solid wood and Pelle Frau® leather structure to form an armchair of unrivalled comfort. The large leather bands become an integral part of the structure to create a balanced spring system that supports the padding covered in fabric or Pelle Frau® leather, which is completely removable and interchangeable.
The structure is produced from solid ash in a Moka or Wengé stain. The wood has a circular cross section in the visible parts and an oval cross section for the lower connecting beams. The armchair cushion support embraces the wooden structure and is made from Pelle Frau® leather. A supporting technical textile located under the seat acts as a spring. The seat and backrest cushions are padded with polyurethane foam and polyester wadding while the armrests are padded with polyester wadding. The lining of the backrest and armrest cushions is stitched as a single element, the lining of the seat cushion is separate and attached to the rest of the lining. The cushions are secured to the structure using hidden zips and snap buttons. The cushions can also be covered with Pelle Frau® leather and fabric. In both cases the cover can be removed. A supplementary cover can be purchased separately.
