The varied and inspired Poltrona Frau collection is divided into a large number of catalogues, different in content yet sharing the same philosophy. The underlying common denominator of the entire range is a desire to create elegant and comfortable rooms that can be enjoyed at any time of day.
The roots of the Poltrona Frau vision are to be found in the home and, more specifically, in a sophisticated idea of comfort where the choice of material and detail takes users into an exclusive, discerning dimension.
Anyone accustomed to the unparalleled tactile and perceptual qualities offered by Poltrona Frau when sitting in a cosy armchair of lying on a comfortable sofa, will later find it difficult to accept a lower level of hospitality and comfort at work!
This is why the Poltrona Frau “Office” collection emerged almost spontaneously during the company’s history, going back to 1912. People used to the uniqueness of a Poltrona Frau home can in this way enjoy the same total satisfaction and uniqueness in the workplace, with the same comfort and the same perfect definition of details. Combining carefully selected leathers with fine woods or metals in sophisticated finishes or precious marble and stone, the Poltrona Frau range is a way to add a touch of home to the office.
Poltrona Frau’s desks, chests of drawers, units and seating solutions all meet rigorous performance requirements, while still channelling an elegant, understated aesthetic. The result is the ideal workplace: an environment whose watchwords are safety and balance, where innovation also encompasses tradition, always focussed on people and their distinguishing traits and differences.
