Poltrona Frau debuts Roberto Lazzeroni's Fred & Ginger in Milan.
A soft leather shell, comfortable and protective. A refined and simple easy chair. Neat, essential, and comfortable.
The desk features a featherlight structure and an uninterrupted leather desk surface that forms a gentle sweeping arc that cascades away from the work edge. The desk is handmade with delicate carvings and cold markings that create delicate debossed graphic decorations on the leather writing surface.
