Innovative materials, important re-editions and sophisticated collection extensions. Poltrona Frau present ‘Future Heritage’, a new 2020 furniture collection of iconic products with a modern edge.

Vanity Fair XC
by Roberto Lazzeroni.

The archetype of a modern armchair.

Ninety years and still going strong. ‘Modello 904’ went into production in 1930 and by 1984, it was known by the name Vanity Fair. The original design has been sophisticatedly re-worked by Poltrona Frau, based on original drawings that Renzo Frau left to his wife Savina. Over the years, Vanity Fair has become one of the universally recognised icons of Italian design, and as an archetype of the armchair itself. Designed in collaboration with Roberto Lazzeroni for the 2020 collection, Vanity Fair XC has been adapted to meet the proportions of today.

An understated aesthetic.

The design features that made the Times bed so unique are reinterpreted in the Times Lounge armchair.

Kyoto
by Gianfranco Frattini.

The perfect cross between design vision and master craftsmanship.

The Kyoto table was designed by Gianfranco Frattini in 1974 and is now faithfully re-issued by Poltrona Frau. Simple Japanese elegance and the tactile richness of solid wood are underlined by expert dovetail joints to create a table where the construction concept becomes the object itself. The absence of decorative elements enhances the beauty of the raw material in this simle yet intricate design.

Martha Rocking Chair

A successful combination of comfort and lightness.

Noted for its rounded forms and saddle-leather shell, the Martha armchair series now includes a Rocking Chair variation, embodying the luxurious comfort of the collection with an added lightness.
