Product description

Jean-Marie Massaud creates the Downtown office chair, combining ergonomics, technique and timeless elegance. The result is an extremely comfortable chair from both an aesthetic and functional point of view.
Downtown steers clear of all rigid schemata. The sensuality of the design is a distinctive feature of Jean-Marie Massaud's work and is enhanced by the touch of the leather, hand-processed by the Poltrona Frau craftsmen.
The geometries of the back of the Downtown alternate broken lines with rounded lines. The armrests and the backrest are separate but almost appear to touch as if embracing you with their dynamic lightness.
The President, Executive and Managerial models are all equipped with a sophisticated mechanism that enables you to set the backrest to 5 different positions and adjust the degree to which the seat can turn. The 5-spoke aluminium base has a polished or black lacquered finish and is complete with soft, self-braking swivel castors.
The differentiated-density polyurethane foam padding of the armchair is very comfortable, perfectly supporting all parts of the body.
Upon request, the upholstery in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System can be produced from micro-perforated leather on the inside of the backrest and the armrests and on the seat cushion. Micro-perforated material, used by Poltrona Frau for car interiors, has breathable properties that make the Downtown even more comfortable. The stitching on the leather is ton-sur-ton.
