Pelle Frau® Saddle Extra leather is 4mm thick. Because of its specific qualities, the leather must not be exposed to direct sunlight or heat sources. Pelle Frau® Saddle leather is the perfect blend of elasticity, touch, thickness and rigidity. It is the product of specific research into the material and the tanning process, aimed at producing a hide with these specific qualities. Resistance to light and stains, dimensional stability and good gluing capacity are the results. The key ingredient is European cow hide, processed using natural techniques and dyed with aniline to limit any damage caused by accidental scratches. The coat is 1.2-1.5 millimetres thick. Imperfections such as scars or wrinkles emphasise the authenticity of the material and its natural origins.
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 – Roberto Lazzeroni
Roberto Lazzeroni, born in Pisa, began his professional life with the study of art and architecture in Florence and the interests he developed during his training, in particular in the conceptual art and radical design movements. In the early 1980s, Lazzeroni made his professional debut with a series of important works in the field of “interior architecture” that immediately attracted attention and were published in Italian and foreign periodicals. Lazzeroni considers “interior architecture” to be a necessary discipline, a sort of “training field” in which to glean varied experience in materials, techniques, and problems inherent to design in the home. A fundamental step for anyone approaching the world of product design. Receptive to the history of design and its “signs,” with a personal stylistic flair that Lazzeroni spontaneously defines as “sentimental design.” It is in fact easy even for the non-expert eye to sense the link between past and future in Roberto Lazzeroni’s projects: his is design that does not parade industrial geometries, but neither does it embody frivolous affectations of aestheticism; it gives objects their correct places in history, in tradition, in an individual and collective autobiography. Lazzeroni’s peculiar understanding of design led him to specialize in concept development: the ideas underlying the creation of new trademarks.
