An armchair, a “Baby” and a miniature

 

Vanity Fair. Reinvented by our children for the children of Favara (Sicily, Italy).

Some of the proceeds of the Vanity Fair Limited Edition will go towards the construction of the Farm Children’s Museum in Favara, a special place devoted to children within the Farm Cultural Park. The new centre will be open to children of all ages and their parents, for educational activities in which the children will get the chance to learn using their creativity, their hands, their colours and materials.

 

 “Little designers” invited to the Poltrona Frau Museum have created a special cover for the Baby and the Mini Vanity Fair.

Using the little pieces of “artwork” by children as a starting point, Poltrona Frau has developed fun and elegant upholstery, with a geometric theme that represents the world of children. Their energy and their creativity unleashed.

The “grown-ups”, on the other hand, dressed the Vanity Fair for adults with a special Pelle Frau® Nubuck leather inspired by Favara.

Grown-ups who want to feel like children and children who want to grow up have thus created an armchair of their dreams.

 

 

Vanity Fair

The armchair expresses the world of adults and the essence of Poltrona Frau elegance.

Special upholstery in Pelle Frau® Nubuck Seppia, exclusively developed by Poltrona Frau and inspired by the tones of Sicilian tuff rock and the ancient Arabic settlements on the island.

The piping in tone-on-tone fabric embellishes the edges of the seat cushion and the edges of the armrest plates.

The project

Poltrona Frau and Cultural Farm share the dream of creating a children’s museum in Favara. For this reason, a special project has been launched to contribute to the construction of the Farm Children’s Museum, in the knowledge that everything becomes real if seen through the eyes of a child.

 

What is Farm Cultural Park?

FARM Cultural Park is an ambitious project launched by Andrea Bartoli and Florinda Saieva, a couple of professionals and innovators who wanted to do something to improve their town. Since its opening in 2010, they have attracted artists, architects, designers from all over the world who have used the exterior of the buildings in Favara as a canvas for their enormous paintings.

 

Farm Children Museum

An art project to rescue a town. An ambitious initiative is transforming the crumbling old centre of Favara, in Sicily, into a modern space for contemporary art. The current challenge is to create the Farm Children’s Museum in Favara. A place where children can learn through play, experiment, invent and have fun. A place where they can develop their critical thinking to become better citizens in the future.

The educational activities within the space will focus on innovative workshops where children will have the chance to “do and learn” using their creativity, their hands, colours and materials.
