The Icons of Poltrona Frau at Artissima
Poltrona Frau is taking part in Artissima, the prestigious modern art fair held from 6 to 8 November at the Oval Lingotto in Turin. The fair, one of the most anticipated and influential events in the field, sees the participation of more than 200 galleries from around the world.
Some of the Icons of Poltrona Frau as well as highly successful modern products, such as the Chester One, the GranTorino and the Archibald of 1919, will form an integral part of the VIP Lounge, a functional space turned installation - the “Opium Den”, by artist Maurizio Vetrugno. The lounge will be an intimate, immersive and captivating space.
The Opium Den will welcome guests to the fair with an organic sculpture, a visual essay exploring the boundary between a work of art and a functional object, a lived-in space and an installation, where the contrast between ancient craftsmanship and Orientalism leads to the blurring and loss of the decorative dimension.
