Officially named the ‘model 904’, but known, since 1984, as ‘Vanity Fair’, over time this armchair has become the very emblem of Poltrona Frau. The project, which was first produced in 1930, four years after the premature death of Renzo Frau, would appear to have been re-elaborated, as a great many others would be later, from the designs left by Renzo to his wife Sabina. The strong volumetric configuration of Vanity Fair has raised it to the status of a universally recognised icon of Italian design.
Seasoned beech support structure. Seat, backrest and armrests sprung by means of hand-tied double cone steel springs resting on jute belts. Hand-shaped rubberised and vegetable horsehair padding.
