The world of saddlery, a realm of luxury craftsmanship and expert processing, is Jean-Marie Massaud’s inspiration for GranTorino, a system of modular sofas which, in its most original and precious version, pairs saddle-leather with Pelle Frau® leather or fabric.

The saddle-leather, cut and moulded by hand, closely follows the lines and geometries of the seating. Precision and complex workmanship also for the slim high armrest and the low armrest, also available with a little compartment that houses an elegant natural oak tray. GranTorino is a sofa that manages to combine compact, well-calibrated volumes, which minimise its overall dimensions, with extremely comfortable seats. The structure is in tubular metal with woven elastic belts. The backrests and armrests are made from birch plywood panel. The seat is padded with variable density CFC-free polyurethane foam and pressed felt. The backrest cushions are padded with goose down and have separate horizontal chambers to provide varied, ergonomic comfort. The feet are in titanium-coloured aluminium. The GranTorino sofa can be upholstered entirely in Pelle Frau® leather or in the options that combine multiple materials.

Architect, designer and inventor, Jean-Marie Massaud seeks to only create designs that question established expectations and subvert trends and preconceptions.

Born in Toulouse, France in 1966, he graduated from the École Nationale Supérieur de Création Industrielle - Les Ateliers, Paris in 1990.

He founded Studio Massaud in 2000 with Daniel Pouzet and His approach is centred on the search for a pure aesthetic, where the individuals’ needs are always paramount.

To date, he has worked for prestigious companies such as, Offecct, Cappellini, Poltrona Frau and Cassina, and luxury brands Armani, Lancôme and Baccarat. In 2000 he founded Studio Massaud with Daniel Pouzet and orientated his activity towards architectural projects alongside furniture and industrial products design.

Although most well known for his furniture designs, such as the Outline easy chair for Cassina, the Archibald A easy chair for Poltrona Frau, the Bond chair for Offecct and the Jackie bed for Poltrona Frau, the studio has also reinvented the architectural brand images of Lancôme and Renault and has directed large-scale projects such as: the Tanabe House (Fukuoka, Japan), a 50,000 seat stadium in Guadalajara, Mexico.
