With its soft and generous lines the Lola Darling bed enchants at first glance. The large headboard, shaped with technical ability and artisan nous, gently opens at the sides. With Lola Darling, Roberto Lazzeroni offers his interpretation of the iconic Poltrona Frau capitonné.
He softens and modernises it without losing its three-dimensionality. The virtuoso leather processing replaces the traditional buttons with a pattern of thin, delicately convex stitched diamonds. Every detail exudes elegance, beginning with the tone-on-tone Pelle Frau® leather border piping which embellishes the inside and outside edges of the headboard and bed frame. The headboard structure is in solid beech and birch plywood. The two lateral parts are shaped and made from moulded polyurethane foam. The padding is in polyurethane foam and polyester wadding. The Lola Darling bed is completely upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather. The cylindrical aluminium feet are either lacquered black or covered with Pelle Frau® leather matching the upholstery of the bed.
Roberto Lazzeroni lives and works in his home town of Pisa. After completing studies in art and architecture in Florence, he chose conceptual art as his focus began creating work that had a more radical approach to design. In the early 1980s he took commission in both industrial and interior design, a specialisation he defines as fundamental to his overall practice. Today Roberto works in the business of design, art directing and shaping corporate identity. His studio is directly responsible for every aspect linked to the birth and development of a firm. At the same time he is also developing new furniture designs for the leading manufacturers in Europe, including Poltrona Frau.
