The Bean Bag Chair Gets an Update: Alexander Wang for Poltrona Frau
Poltrona Frau launches this month a limited-edition collection of lounge pieces designed with Alexander Wang. Consisting of two bean bag-style seats and a trunk bar, the furniture creates a relaxed, easy atmosphere easy on the eyes and refined to the touch.
The fashion designed selected Frau’s Pelle Frau® Soul full grain, matte black leather upholstery and shearling to sit atop a geometric, bronze-plated steel base. The velvety leather keeps the seating cozy and comfortable.
The portable trunk bar is also in the ever-trendy matte black, finished with polished steel brims, custom hinges, and recessed steel wheels for mobility. The console can be used as a side table when closed, or mini bar when open. Inside is a black suede lining and compact shelves with steel edging.
“I always loved this idea of hanging out in a basement on bean bags, but taking that youthfulness and re-contextualizing it into something very luxurious and aspirational. Poltrona Frau has such a deep history and incredible knowledge of furniture design. Their level of craftsmanship with furniture is truly distinguished, and together we were able to create something that I’m really excited to introduce,” said Wang.
