Poltrona Frau - Ming's Heart

Ming's Heart - Shi-Chien Lu - 2016

East and West. The Ming’s Heart armchair goes right to the heart of two worlds, two visions, two life and lifestyle philosophies.

The inspiration for Shi-Chieh Lu’s work is the historic Ming chair. The calligraphic purity of the fluid lines, the perfect expression of Chinese and oriental spirituality, is combined with the geometric and cubic rigour of the Western vision.

Shi-Chieh Lu scratches beneath the surfaces to obtain a continuous line. The armrests, seat and backrest become ultra-light symbols.
The Ming’s Heart armchair has a steel tube structure with gunmetal grey galvanic treatment.

The shell is a continuous surface made from thin steel sheet completely upholstered in Saddle Extra leather with contrast stitching.
Its ends are attached to the tubes with visible screws.
The overall effect is that of a chair floating in space, almost a conceptual sculpture.
