Arabesque

Armchairs from Poltrona Frau, Designed by Kensaku Oshiro

Product description

The sinuous lines of the Arabesque armchair have the same natural tension as the body of a ballerina. With this project designer Kensaku Oshiro achieves a fluid balance and a flexible grace that stem from complex processes for an end result that exudes pure beauty. Thin cushions layered like flower petals guarantee the exceptional comfort of the seat, at the same time acting as the frame. The result is a compact and clean aesthetic that is both dynamic and vibrant at the same time. In the Arabesque armchair everything is designed to be accommodating. The deliberately low seat and reclined backrest, together with the pouf, are an invitation to sit back and relax. Materials and construction details are calibrated to guarantee maximum ergonomic performances. The high version of the Arabesque armchair comes complete with headrest made from rigid polyurethane with moulded polyurethane foam padding. The backrest and seat structure is in moulded rigid polyurethane with metallic insert and padding in polyurethane foam. The cushions are in thermoformed ABS plastic with the application of polyurethane foam padding. Tubular metal with gunmetal grey or burnished and blasted finish for the armrests: in the area that supports the elbows they are lightly padded with polyurethane foam and upholstered in hand-stitched Pelle Frau® leather. The Arabesque armchair is upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather or elegant combinations of leather and fabric.

Concept

Kensaku Oshiro has designed a small armchair of pure beauty. Arabesque’s sinuous lines display the same natural tension as a dancer's body. A fluid balance and a supple grace that derive from complex processes. Thin cushions layered like flower petals make for a supremely comfortable seat, while also providing a structure. This produces a compact and clean aesthetic that is both dynamic and vital. Everything is designed to be welcoming. The deliberately low seat and the angled backrest, together with the pouf, ease you into an informal and relaxed position.

Materials and construction details are calibrated for maximum ergonomic performance. The high version of Arabesque comes complete with a headrest made of rigid polyurethane with moulded polyurethane foam padding. The backrest and seat structure is in moulded rigid polyurethane with a metal insert and polyurethane foam padding. The cushions are made of thermoformed ABS with polyurethane foam padding. Tubular metal with gunmetal finish or blasted-burnished for the armrests. The elbow rests are lightly padded in polyurethane foam and covered in hand-sewn Pelle Frau® leather. Arabesque is upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather or in elegant leather and fabric combinations.
