Archibald Dining Chair
The Archibald armchair, one of the icons of Poltrona Frau, winner of the Wallpaper* Design Award for "Best Domestic Design" in 2009, inspires an interpretation of the dining chair in a version with a metal base: four conical legs with an oval section, made of painted steel.
The Archibald padded dining armchair maintains the characteristics of Jean-Marie Massaud's clean and sculpted design, a contemporary take on the classic English tub armchair, rich in sartorial details: from the refined movement of the folds of the upholstery in Pelle Frau® leather or fabric, to the armrest, designed like a slightly open shirt collar. The extremely comfortable seat shell is the masterful result of a precise padding in moulded polyurethane foam: stiffer in the armrests, softer and integrated with polyester wadding in the part of the seat.
The different sizes and purposes of Archibald, from armchair to dining chair to stool, show the extraordinary versatility of its shape in adapting to different functions, from residential to hospitality, in dining rooms and designer living rooms, or those with a more classic style, always remaining unique and original.
