Miss Dondola

Poltrona Frau has unveiled two major projects in the flagship store of Wooster Street, Soho:
Barrique: The third life of wood”, a project that has given shape to a collection of furniture and accessories designed by famous Italian and international designers -  Michele de Lucchi, Marc Sadler, Mario Botta and Alessandro Mendini, and created by the boys from San Patrignano community of life, that welcomes those who are afflicted by addiction and marginalization. The furnishings have been embellished with details and finishes in Frau Leather, as the Doc chaise longue, whose slats, designed by Marc Sadler, create the effect of a spine; Miss Dondola, the rocking chair by Angela Missoni customized with a multicolor pillow; Inverso, stool designed by Karim Rashid. All objects were made with the wood of the barriques, the barrels used for aging wine, which otherwise would have ended up in landfills.
