From Renzo Frau’s historic archives, the classic Club armchair, with its retro 1940’s design, is reissued in a lighter and more versatile version. Extremely comfortable and compact, Club is inspired by the conversation chairs that were fashionable in the gentlemen’s clubs of the period.
The Club armchair integrates easily into all spaces, maintaining all the value of the artisan processing synonymous with the Poltrona Frau tradition. In the Club armchair intricate hand stitching embellishes the backrest and seat. The spring system consists of hand-tied biconical springs attached to jute belts. The structure is made from seasoned beech. The feet are made from beech with a dark walnut stain. The front feet have castors with gunmetal grey finish. The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather or fabric.
Lorenzo Frau, known as ‘Renzo’, was born in Cagliari in 1881. He left Sardinia for military service in Milan, which he completed successfully earning the title of lieutenant. He married Savina Pisati and moved to Turin, at the time a real hub of Italian culture.
