Concept and Design

The Archibald armchair has always been a huge success for Poltrona Frau, ever since it was first created. Its designer, Jean-Marie Massaud, delicately combined form and substance, achieving the perfect balance between a comfortable and snug seat – offset by slim feet – creating an elegant and stylish final result.

The Archibald line, now an extended family, has preserved its distinctive design elements: the armrest ear, folded like a shirt lapel left slightly exposed, is a surprise detail that adds character and lightness to the seating. The rich, free-folding vertical drapery of the covering, in addition to the tone-on-tone or contrast stitching around the edges or outer surfaces, add to the design of a versatile and sophisticated collection that exemplifies contemporary luxury. 

Designed by
Jean-Marie Massaud

Born in Toulouse in 1966, Jean-Marie Massaud graduated in 1990 from Les Ateliers, Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Création Industrielle, Paris. He began to work both in Asia and in France, finally opening his own office in Paris in 1994. Since than, he has dedicated himself to industrial and furniture design, building important relationships with brands such as Authentics, Baccarat and Magis. His collaboration with Marc Berthier and his work in the field of town planning led him towards design and architecture. He is concerned with design in various contexts, industrial products and furniture. His contextual approach centres on research into the essential, within which the individual remains the centre of attention. It is a work upheld by research into the senses, magic, and vital emotion which brings him to work with very different brands: Cassina, Poltrona Frau, Cappellini, Cacharel, Lancôme, Tronconi and Yamaha offshore.

His works have been awarded several prizes and many of his designs are nowadays on show in the design collections of the major museums worldwide: from Amsterdam, Chicago, London, Paris and Zurich: from the permanent collection of the Musée National d'Art Moderne de Paris to the permanent collections of the Museum für Gestaltung, Zürich, of The Chicago Athenaeum- Museum of Architecture and Design, of The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam and of The Musée des arts Décoratifs, Paris.
