Armchairs from Poltrona Frau, Designed by Roberto Lazzeroni

Product description

Aida, armchair and swivel armchair, has a soft and graceful design that brings to mind the corolla of a flower. In fact, its armrests open and curve outwards like petals. When designing Aida, Roberto Lazzeroni combined classic construction techniques with contemporary materials and expedients. As with the classic items from the Poltrona Frau archives, the spring system of the seat, made of seasoned beechwood and birch plywood, consists of hand-tied steel biconical springs attached to jute belts. In line with the latest technologies, the backrest shell and seat padding are in moulded polyurethane foam. Alongside the version entirely in Pelle Frau® leather with border piping in leather or grosgrain, the Aida armchair can also pair a Pelle Frau® leather exterior surface with a fabric inside surface (with fabric trim). Another alternative combination is Cuoio Saddle Extra leather for the shell and Pelle Frau® leather or fabric for the inside surface, with trim in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather. The Aida armchair is available in both a fixed and swivel version.


Aida, with its soft and graceful design, evokes the corolla of a flower. The arms open and curve outwards like petals. Simple geometrical forms make up what is a delicate yet strongly characterised ensemble. Again, with this design, Roberto Lazzeroni has created a familiar shape whose incisive style makes it new and modern.

Besides nature, the iconographic reference is 1950s furniture. Aida echoes the clean forms and the combination of fabric and leather typical of that period. In this refined oscillation between past and present, the armchair blends traditional production techniques with up-to-date materials and effects. Like traditional Poltrona Frau pieces, the seat, made in seasoned beechwood, is sprung with hand-tied steel biconical springs laid on jute belts. The frame of the back and the padding of the seat, in line with the very latest technology, are in moulded polyurethane foam.

The upholstery is embellished with a leather or grosgrain border. Alongside the version with Pelle® Frau leather on the outside and fabric on the inside, the armchair can also be completely covered with Pelle® Frau leather from the Color System, Nest, Heritage, Soul or Century. Aida is available in a fixed or revolving version. Its base is made of black painted wood fibre..
