Lloyd Tex

Sideboards from Poltrona Frau, Designed by Jean-Marie Massaud

Product description

Inspired by the world of hi-fi loudspeakers, the Lloyd Tex self-supporting bookcase, designed by Jean-Marie Massaud, plays on the transparency and lightness of the Techno-fabric panels, a semi-transparent technical fabric in Light and Dark colours. The panels slide on invisible horizontal tracks, creating ever-changing sequences.

In Lloyd Tex, the most advanced technology comes together with traditional materials such as wood, in a delicate balance between different spirits of material. And the interplay of solids and voids becomes even more evident, allowing a glimpse of the content of the freestanding bookcase, without completely revealing it.


Jean-Marie Massaud has designed Lloyd, a system of storage units and bookcases, with variable geometries. A series of thin vertical wooden rods form light grids that run from top to bottom on invisible horizontal rails. Each grid can be moved as desired creating different sequences each time. A fluctuating score of solids and voids, of light and shade. A playful game that allows a glimpse of the contents, books and objects, without fully revealing them.

The most advanced technology is combined with traditional materials, wood and saddle leather, forming a solid and minimalistic structure. The horizontal elements on which the grids slide are made from HPL, a material which even in very thin layers guarantees stability and strength, with a natural oak veneer. The vertical uprights, covered with Cuoio Saddle or Cuoio Saddle Extra leather, are placed at regular intervals to give the piece a rhythm and enhance the effect of the movable grids. Each grid is a meticulous phase of cabinetwork. The solid oak rods are cut in different thicknesses and then individually glued by hand. Also, on the thin surfaces of the rods, the lead-coloured dye is applied by hand in several phases.
