Leplì by Kensaku Oshiro for Poltrona Frau
Updated: Dec 11, 2019
A padded stool, a bench and a footrest. The Japanese designer, Kensaku Oshiro, has designed three pieces with great versatility yet with a strong identity. For this collection, the designer has drawn inspiration from traditional Poltrona Frau production processes and decorations, combining them with tailoring ideas from the fashion world. Classic stitching and soft folds enhance the sinuous minimalism of the design. The voluptuous curves of the stool, are inspired by the female body shape, as if it were a dress, with slender belt highlighting her “waist”. The leather upholstery comes with the same-colour of the leather whilst he fabric upholstery comes always with leather. The frame is in birch plywood and poplar with uprights in solid beech. The base is in multilayer poplar with bottom in black lacquered non-scratch MDF. Padded with polyurethane foam and polyester wadding. Upholstery available in Pelle Frau® or in Poltrona Frau textiles. The Leplì collection is now enriched by a new, elegant container pouf. With a pleasantly slender and elongated shape, this element is a handy seat and also perfect for the bedroom. A practical hidden mechanical system facilitates opening with one simple action, letting you access the spacious inner compartment.
