Leather armchair

Manufacture year


Made in just 110 pieces to celebrate Poltrona Frau's 110th anniversary, the Archibald Limited Anniversary Edition is a new interpretation of the iconic Archibald armchair by the visual artist Felipe Pantone.‎
It is an unexpected blend of Poltrona Frau's heritage and manual expertise and the Argentine-Spanish street artist's optical and digital language, vibrant with colours.‎ Inspired by the ColorSphere® palette, Felipe Pantone creates a pattern that blurs the contours and brings the leather surface of the armchair to life.‎ The simple balance of form and the timeless elegance of Archibald are transposed into an ultramodern style.‎

Archibald, designed by Jean-Marie Massaud, is a wide and deep armchair with a steel structure, padded with moulded polyurethane foam and polyester wadding for greater comfort.‎ It is distinguished by the pleasantly textured leather upholstery and the folded armrests that resemble a shirt collar.‎ Thanks to a process of digital printing on the leather, usually reserved for small luxury leather goods, Felipe Pantone's artwork gives the upholstery a nuanced palette of reds, oranges, yellows, whites and blues reminiscent of the hot and cold temperatures of a heat map.‎ The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® ColorSphere® Impact Less, the innovative leather tanned with sustainable components and without the use of chrome for a reduced environmental impact.‎

To emphasize the chromatic vibe of the surface, the base, characterised by four die-cast aluminium feet and a steel frame, has a multicolour chrome finish: a special iridescent paint treatment in colours and light, which gives a brilliant purplish-blue shade.‎ A brass plaque, in the same finish as the base, bears the artist's signature and the words “ONE OF 110”.‎ In addition, every Archibald Limited Anniversary Edition comes with a specific cleaning kit and an exclusive clutch, made in the same   multicoloured leather as the upholstery and containing the certificate of authenticity of the product signed by the artist.‎

To celebrate this special collaboration, Archibald Limited Anniversary Edition is also available in a miniature size, still upholstered in the same Pelle Frau® ColorSphere® Impact Less leather and made with the same care and attention to detail as the original version.‎

Archibald invites you in to mediate and relax.‎ The icon chair created by Jean-Marie Massaud today goes royal: Archibald King is here.‎ Important, majestic, fit for royalty.‎ A distinguishing large headrest takes up on the elegant folds of the backrest featured throughout the collection.‎ Thus the pleasantly undulating leather is embellished along the edges and external surfaces of the upholstery with contrast stitching, giving it a refined, elegant appeal.‎
The frame of the backrest and seat is in steel with moulded polyurethane foam padding, and shaped foam with polyester wadding in the zones where more comfort is needed.‎ Springing is obtained from elastic belts and the base is made up of four feet in cast aluminium with a tubular steel frame in a gunmetal grey finish.‎ The upholstery is in Pelle Frau® leather.‎
