The Viola chair stands out for its sophisticated and modern reinterpretation of classic design motifs, carefully balancing Scandinavian inspirations with contemporary luxury.
When Poltrona Frau asked AB Concept to design a table chair, it was well aware of the studio?s ability to create innovative and popular solutions for leading restaurants, bistros and lounge bars all over the world. The Viola chair embodies all of the know-how of the famous international brand and stands out for its simple, elegant lines that sacrifice nothing in terms of comfort. AB Concept has revisited a classic design, giving it a decidedly contemporary touch. The result is a product with great formal lightness and a solid and void effect which enhances the dining table chair both when it is used alone and when it is combined with a table. The solid wood of the backrest is embellished with a weave made from sixty saddle-leather laces which connect it to the frame. Its harmonious and ergonomic proportions, combined with a generous and welcoming seat, guarantee the utmost comfort even when sitting for long periods. Despite being solid and well constructed, the seat is light and easy to move.
The frame of the chair is made from solid ash in a Moka or Wenge stain embellished with a weave made from dark brown or natural saddle-leather laces. The seat spring system consists of elastic belts. There are soft cushions on the seat and backrest. The seat cushion is filled with polyurethane foam and polyester wadding while the backrest is padded with down and has an insert in polyurethane foam. The two cushions form a single whole which is fixed to the frame using two snap buttons. The removable upholstery is in Pelle Frau leather or fabric.
With the Viola chair Poltrona Frau confirms its vocation for designing products that successfully fuse the past with the present. Items of furniture and objects inspired by cultured and profound design concepts which are able to transcend time.
