Light, feminine, highly alluring: Roberto Lazzeroni’s Nivola armrest and sofa stand out for their clean, streamlined designs. Simple and precise lines for a compact and rounded seat, enhanced by warm and natural materials expertly processed by Poltrona Frau.
The backrest shell is formed from moulded polyurethane foam with light padding in polyurethane foam and polyester wadding. The seasoned beechwood seat is padded with polyurethane foam and pressed felt and has a spring system consisting of elastic belts. The seat cushions are in goose down with polyurethane foam stabilising insert to reduce the sinking effect without compromising on comfort. The four feet are made from solid ash in a wenge stain or moka ash. The external shell of the Nivola sofa and armchair is upholstered in saddle-leather or Pelle Frau® leather while the inside is covered in Pelle Frau® leather or fabric, enriched with fine visible contrast stitching.
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.
