Jean-Marie Massaud drew on the incredible heritage of Poltrona Frau when designing the new Byron chaise longue. The Byron is the result of expert handcraftsmanship that continues to find new expressions. Jean-Marie Massaud conceives of it as a radical piece of architecture where every material carries out its role with rigour and elegance.
The supporting structure of the Byron chaise longue, light and stable, is inspired by the precision of the goldsmith’s art. The sophisticated woodwork combines solid ash and stainless steel, echoing the impeccable workings of a watch. The structure accommodates the soft leather seat whose design is perfect for long periods of relaxation. The padding comprises a sequence of cushions stitched one by one using techniques reminiscent of the most elegant leather accessories. The padding, with its high-performance ergonomics, is obtained with steel diamonds and polyurethane foam. The large retractable armrests can be pulled back silently just by moving them with your hands. The soft headrest cushion, integrated with a brushed aluminium bracket and fixed between the padding, can be removed and adjusted to two different heights as required.
The colours and details of the Byron chaise longue communicate a sensation of calm and relaxation. The ash wood has an ebony stain. The steel is brushed. The upholstery of the headrest cushion and seat is in Pelle Frau® leather. The Poltrona Frau logo is engraved on a brass plate with matt nickel finish located on the rear crosspiece of the chaise longue. The adjustable feet are in black plastic.
