Martha | Rocking armchair

Roberto Lazzeroni

Starting from
€ 5.338

The design of the Martha armchair is based on the meeting of the two main elements of the frame, both in moulded rigid polyurethane. The seat and armrests form part of a single sinuous open profile, the two extremities projecting towards the exterior. The curved and slightly padded backrest appears to float in the air but is actually fixed to the frame with a hidden system. The entire product is supported by a triangular-section wooden easel structure. The seat’s slight incline towards the back ensures optimal comfort and emphasises the armchair’s dynamic design. The four-legged base is made from solid ash available with a wenge or moka finish. The Martha rocking chair is also supported by a curved solid ash base in the same finishes.

The colour effects and material combinations underline the fluidity and lightness of Martha. The outside of the frame is upholstered with a rich shell of Saddle Extra Leather while the inside can be covered in Pelle Frau® leather or fabric. The combination of the two materials is emphasised by the elegant visible contrast stitching carried out by hand. A soft seat cushion with removable cover in Pelle Frau® leather or fabric completes the product. The Martha armchair is 100% FSC® certified for all upholstery combinations that involve the use of Pelle Frau® leather and fabric not containing viscose deriving from forests.

Concept and Design

A shell, almost a petal that houses and protects without closing itself off. The Martha armchair, designed by Roberto Lazzeroni for Poltrona Frau, manages to combine comfort and lightness. Soft forms and fine materials for an airy, relaxed elegance. The Martha rocking chair is its most playful and informal version: the rocking base in solid ash, an authentic masterpiece of wood craftsmanship, creates a comfortable and fun rocking chair.
