Poltrona Frau


Renzo Frau founded Poltrona Frau in Turin in 1912. In 1962, after the acquisition by the Nazareno Gabrielli group, the company moved to Tolentino in the Marche region. Under the lead of President Franco Moschini the company cooperates with the most famous Italian and international architects and designers.

In 2004, Poltrona Frau is acquired by Charme Investments, which englobes in its brand other historical and prestigious companies like Cappellini, and in 2005 also Cassina. This is the founding year of Poltrona Frau Group, a new point of reference in the luxury furniture industry.

In 2014, the American group Haworth is the new majority shareholder of Poltrona Frau Group, widening their undisputed leadership on a worldwide basis.

Poltrona Frau Museum

Poltrona Frau Museum is a project designed by Michele De Lucchi.
It is a rigorous piece of architecture within the Poltrona Frau facility.

On display is a collection of furniture, drawings, images and materials never before displayed to the public. An area of 1400 square meters of design and ‘The intelligence in our hands’. At the entrance a welcoming reception and info point, free wi-fi connection, booking service for reservation to create a unique experience.

A city of spectacular towers of different heights, like huge out-of-scale lanterns, which help create an almost magical atmosphere and light the different paths through the museum, within furniture, time period and style references.
