Roberto Lazzeroni’s Diva armchair and chair are the natural evolution of the Vittoria series. The inspiration is aesthetic elements heavily associated with the history of Poltrona Frau and immediately recognisable. The spiral at the bottom of the backrest is a stylised nod to the classics.
The folds at the corners of the seat, like the hand-tied biconical springs, are Poltrona Frau hallmarks. In the Diva armchair and chair the seat frame, padded in polyurethane foam and polyester wadding, is in birch plywood. The shell is in moulded rigid polyurethane. The base and legs are in wenge- or moka-stained solid ash wood (special finishes are available on request). Moulded polyurethane foam and polyester wadding also for the padding of the backrest. The sinuous armrests emerge naturally from the shell to create a welcoming seat that is designed to guarantee new sensations of comfort. The Diva is upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather or Poltrona Frau fabrics.
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.
