Ceccotti Collezioni – owned by Poltrona Frau since 2018 – joins in celebrating its 100+10 years of True Evolution anniversary with a special project focused on the Gentleman wardrobe, designed by Guglielmo Ulrich in 1932 which is now part of the Masters Tribute line. The wardrobe is now ninety years old and, to celebrate the Salone del Mobile, it has been reissued in eleven special pieces, with the interior also reworked thanks to the stylistic contribution of Poltrona Frau.
Working fully in harmony with the heirs of Guglielmo Ulrich, who participated in the project, the interior has been redesigned to meet the needs of a “contemporary gentleman”, and also to offer some functions that have recently emerged with the advent of digital technology.
Therefore, in addition to more traditional accessories such as the umbrella holder, brush and wax holder, the clothes and accessory holder, and two different mirrors (for full figure or face), the reissue also features a compartment for watches and straps, and an iPhone/wireless speaker charger.
The drawer fronts, with ebony handles, are covered with Poltrona Frau Limo or Darsena leather, in understated and everlasting colours. The interiors of the drawers are in Nabuk Paprika.
Ceccotti Collezioni has also tapped the expertise of Jean Paul Menicucci, who has worked in the world of fashion and leather goods for over 30 years: “This is how this project was born. From the dream of a unique wardrobe that every man would like to have, with all his toys inside: from watches, to clothes, to music.”
Franco Ceccotti, Founder & Art Director of Ceccotti Collezioni, comments: “Ceccotti Collezioni is the result of thirty years of work made with passion and great heart, with the aim of creating a true and rare product of Made in Italy excellence. We share enormous affinities and synergies with Poltrona Frau. Ceccotti Collezioni has the same passion for wood that Poltrona Frau has for leather, and we share the pursuit of the highest quality and innovation, and sensitivity to particular details. The limited edition of Gentleman that we are presenting at this 2022 Salone is the emblem of all these values“.
Nicola Coropulis, CEO of Poltrona Frau, adds: “Ceccotti Collezioni expresses the same degree of mastery, craftsmanship, excellence in workmanship and superior quality in the finished product that Poltrona Frau has achieved in the field of upholstered leather since 1912. The special edition of Guglielmo Ulrich’s Gentleman wardrobe is a beautiful tribute to Poltrona Frau in the year of its 110th anniversary, as it concretely translates a shared interpretation of the author’s project into a design where the two brands are perfectly integrated at in terms of concept and materials“.
