Glenn ottoman and bench

Famous Canadian pianist Glenn Gould was so attached to his personal piano stool – in reality an old chair which his father adapted to his own highly idiosyncratic seating requirements – that he refused to play without it.

And it was the great musician’s piano stool that provided Roberto Lazzeroni with the inspiration to design Glenn, a pouf that can also be used as a bench or footrest.

In reality, it was deliberately designed this way, acting as a natural complement for the new 2019 armchair. In fact, its soft Pelle Frau® leather seat is enriched with handmade detailing identical to that on the armchair’s backrest, the capitonné processing that has come to symbolise the quality and artisan expertise of the Poltrona Frau brand. The personality, great harmony and balanced proportions of the Glenn pouf make it an independent and versatile item of furniture that is at home in any setting, whether on its own or combined with other furnishings.

The birch plywood frame has a solid ash base with Wenge or Moka stain, with four slender legs that add a touch of lightness to the overall effect. The seat is padded with polyurethane foam while the spring system consists of elastic belts.
