Product description

The Archibald by Jean-Marie Massaud is the perfect combination of substance and form, the armchairs and poufs boasting a comfortable and enveloping design ideal for meditation and relaxation. The breadth and depth of the seat is balanced by its thin feet for an agile and slender overall effect. In the Archibald armchair the leather upholstery, pleasantly wavy thanks to a series of vertical folds, is embellished along the edges and external surfaces by contrast stitching, giving it an extra touch of refined elegance. The backrest and seat structure is made from steel with moulded polyurethane foam padding and shaped foam with polyester wadding in the areas where more comfort is required. The spring system consists of elastic belts. The base comprises four cast aluminium feet and a tubular steel frame with gunmetal grey finish. The Archibald armchairs and pouf are upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather.

Concept

A royal chair in style and comfort. An invitation to relax.
Jean-Marie Massaud has conceived a new version of his iconic Poltrona Frau Archibald chair, creating Archibald King. This important armchair is majestic, like a king. It is an invitation to meditate and relax in your study or living room. One distinctive feature is the large headrest that opens out like a classic wing chair. Soft and welcoming, it follows the elegant play of folds that characterises the inner part of the backrest. The whole chair is upholstered in Heritage or Soul Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System, with contrasting stitching along the handmade seams. The frame of the backrest and seat is steel with polyurethane foam padding. The structure of the backrest and seat is made of steel with padding moulded, expanded and shaped with polyester wadding in the zones where more comfort is needed. Elastic belts provide the seat with its springiness. It has four feet in cast aluminium and a tubular steel frame with a gunmetal grey finishing. The following is needed to produce an Archibald King armchair:

11 square metres of Pelle Frau® leather
200 m of thread
40 m of stitching
3 kg of birch plywood
2 kg of aluminium
9 kg of iron
8 hours work
