REN By Poltrona Frau
Tocador de madera
The collection takes the name of the Chinese “ren” ideogram, which means person. From the birth of the language, this symbol appeared on ancient Chinese oracle bones used for divination. Two simple strokes constitute a pictographic representation of the human figure. The longer stroke sticks out slightly and is supported by the shorter stroke. The two elements depend on each other for their stability, a relationship that perfectly represents the architectural construction of each item in the collection. Each piece consists of two “ren”, which make up the main structure in Canaletto walnut solid wood and together support the secondary structures, also in wood. The functional elements that form part of the structures have softer and more curved forms, which are elegantly upholstered in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather. The brass details add a precious touch to the design.
The collection includes a series of accessories and is now expanded to include a small armchair and sofa, a bookcase, magazine rack and table mirror. A wealth of objects offering a coherent definition of the various spaces of the home
