The Turner bookcase designed by Gianfranco Frattini for Poltrona Frau and presented in an exclusive review at Salone del Mobile 2019 has won the Wallpaper Design Awards 2020.
Turner was created to be the absolute centrepiece of any room, with its swivel construction and dimensions: 123 cm tall and 65 cm wide. The bookcase is built with an internal load-bearing structure in metal enclosed in a central column made with birch plywood panels veneered in Canaletto walnut. It has grooves where 21 dividers can be inserted to form shelves. These dividers also have edges in fine solid Canaletto walnut wood.
The bookcase received the prestigious Wallpaper* Design Awards 2020 in the category “Best Flashback”. The award was assigned by a jury of experts, including the team from Wallpaper* magazine and important people from the worlds of art and design.
Wallpaper* magazine, an authoritative reference point for the international design, fashion and lifestyle sector, organizes the contest every year in order to recognize the “best of” all products in the sectors of design, architecture and fashion.
This means considering the best of the creativity of the previous twelve months, and deciding which products and projects are destined to be trendsetters on a global level.
This is certainly a wonderful achievement for the Poltrona Frau brand. Receiving this prestigious award confirms their commitment and devotion, expressed in years of research, to designing furnishing solutions that are always unique and forward-looking.
