Archibald Armchair by Poltrona Frau
Archibald invites you in to meditate and relax. The enveloping design is exalted by the free play of folds that the leather creates across the internal part of the backrest, making it pleasantly undulating. The precious contrasting stitching along the seams and on the external surfaces of the upholstery creates a refined elegance. The frame of the backrest and seat is in steel with moulded polyurethane foam padding, and shaped foam with polyester wadding in the zones where more comfort is needed. Springing is obtained from elastic belts and the base is made up of four feet in cast aluminium with a tubular steel frame in a gunmetal grey finish. The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® Color System leather.

Pelle Frau® Color System leather, the finest European raw material, is synonymous with colour: a coordinated range of 96 different shades. Control over the palette is entrusted to the Color System Frau® which since 1987 has been opening its range of shades to different colour variations, designed to harmoniously adorn and go with both legendary icons and contemporary designs. The combination of specific technical research and Poltrona Frau’s vast experience has resulted in a perfect balance between the natural material and the treatment of the surface during the finishing phase. Interesting, in sensory terms, for its resistance and its excellent performance during usage and maintenance, over time Pelle Frau® Color System leather becomes even more elegant. Because of its specific qualities, the leather must not be exposed to direct sunlight or heat sources. Pelle Frau® leather is resistant to wear and tear and flex and maintains its colour in normal conditions.

About The Designer – Jean-Marie Massaud
Born in Toulouse in 1966, Jean-Marie Massaud graduated in 1990 from Les Ateliers, Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle, Paris. He began to work both in Asia and in France, finally opening his own office in Paris in 1994. Since then, he has dedicated himself to industrial and furniture design. His collaboration with Marc Berthier and his work in the field of town planning led him towards design and architecture. He is concerned with design in various contexts, industrial products and furniture. His contextual approach centres on research into the essential, within which the individual remains the centre of attention. It is a work upheld by research into the senses, magic, and vital emotion which brings him to work with many brands.
His work has been awarded several prizes and many of his designs are nowadays on show in the design collections of the major museums worldwide: from Amsterdam, Chicago, London, Paris and Zurich: from the permanent collection of the Musée National d’Art Moderne de Paris to the permanent collections of the Museum für Gestaltung, Zürich, of The Chicago Athenaeum- Museum of Architecture and Design, of The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and of The Musée des arts Décoratifs, Paris.
