Armchairs from Poltrona Frau, Designed by Satyendra Pakhalé

Product description

In Marathi, Satyendra Pakhalé’s mother tongue, Assaya means “provide comfortable support” or “create a pleasant sentiment”, but also “analyse” or “assess”. The designer’s inspiration for this collection (armchair, pouf, side table and laptray) is our increasingly connected world where the boundary between the domestic space and the workplace is increasingly blurred. For the Assaya armchair, the structure of the backrest and armrests, comprising a single shell, is in rigid polyurethane padded with polyurethane foam and wadding. The seat is in seasoned beechwood with elastic belts. The upholstery is in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather for the exterior and Pelle Frau® leather or fabric for the inside surface. The edge of the saddle leather surface is embellished with elegant visible contrast stitching. The Assaya pouf is available entirely upholstered in fabric or in Pelle Frau® leather. The side table and laptray have plywood surfaces in birch and poplar respectively with light padding in polyurethane foam on the underside. Here too the edge of the saddle-leather surface is decorated with visible contrast stitching.


Unusual surface and colour effects for the Assaya armchair and pouf. In addition to Pelle Frau® Leather, new fabric upholstery options bring out the sinuous design of this collection. The armchair features elegant weaves wrapped around the inner part of the seat, which go wonderfully with Cuoio Saddle Extra Leather that covers the external shell. The edging of the leather surface is embellished with fine visible contrast stitching.
The same combination is used on the pouf. Entirely upholstered in fabric, it has border piping in Cuoio Saddle Extra Leather running around the lower part of the cushion.

The backrest and armrest on the armchair consist of a single shell in rigid polyurethane padded in polyurethane foam and wadding. The seat is in seasoned beech wood with elastic belts and the same padding as the back. The armchair swivels 360° with automatic return to the starting point. The base on the armchair, pouf and side table that completes the collection is an aluminium-coloured painted steel plate. The side table has one steel leg with shaped profile.
