Catalogue "Icons" Poltrona Frau
In analysing the Poltrona Frau collection, and in particular as concerns the type of armchair, it becomes immediately apparent that a number of items could easily be defined as ‘icons’. These are items whose design has become ‘settled’ to the extent that they can be deemed to represent an entire period, or rather to in some way ‘summarise’ the design style of a particular creator. This has allowed these items to last through time, retaining all their semantic character intact. In this catalogue, we have chosen to acknowledge the role of ‘icons’ as pertaining to eleven different products designed during the first hundred years of Poltrona Frau by five masters of Italian design: Renzo Frau, Gio Ponti, Guglielmo Ulrich, Gastone Rinaldi, Achille and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni.
