Spalvieri & Del Ciotto
The design principles that made the Times bed unique are revisited in the Times Lounge armchair to create a timeless seat which combines an advanced construction technique with understated and mellow contemporary aesthetics. Designed by Spalvieri & Del Ciotto for Poltrona Frau, the Times Lounge armchair has a sophisticated and ultra-light structure and a cover which naturally assumes its forms like a tailored suit, making it soft and welcoming.
The structure of the Times Lounge armchair is made from solid ash in a moka or wenge stain. The wood has a visible circular cross section and an oval cross section for the lower connecting beams. The armchair cushion support embraces the wooden structure and is made from Pelle Frau® leather. A supporting technical textile located under the seat acts as a spring. The seat and backrest cushions are padded with polyurethane foam and polyester wadding while the armrests are padded with polyester wadding. The lining of the backrest and armrest cushions is stitched as a single element, the lining of the seat cushion is separate and attached to the rest of the lining. The cushions are secured to the structure using hidden zips and snap buttons. The cushions can also be covered with Pelle Frau® leather or fabric. In both cases the cover can be removed. An additional cover can be purchased separately.
The structure of the Times Lounge pouf is in solid ash and is distinctive for its two circular-section stands at the sides connected by two oval-section bars which echo the design choices of the armchair. It is available with a moka- or wenge-stained finish. A band of Pelle Frau® leather forms the taut surface over which the second padded cover, in polyurethane foam and polyester wadding, is positioned. The upholstery is available in Pelle Frau® leather or fabric. In both cases the upper padded cover can be removed.
The Times Lounge 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.
