The Sanluca Armchair is the brainchild of legendary Italian designers Achille and Pier Castiglioni. Together, they dreamed of creating a chair so perfectly designed that it would not require much padding. The sinuous form of the Sanluca soon followed, visually striking and wonderfully contoured in order to support relaxation.
To celebrate 100 years since the birth of Achille Castiglioni, Poltrona Frau has released the Sanluca in a limited edition upholstery by Max Huber. Named "Geophysical Waves", it lends new undulation to this classic while telling the story of icons of Italian design.
Please note that this is a numbered and limited edition series of 100 pieces. While this makes it the perfect gift for design lovers, we recommend calling the showroom to double check the quantity remaining before placing your order. A bronze plate with ruthenium finish indicating the number of the armchair is located on the back.
