Vertigo sofa bed
The distinguishing trait of the Vertigo Daybed is its dual identity. Inspired by the cool main character from the Alfred Hitchcock film, this EOOS design for Poltrona Frau is perfect for the executive office, welcoming visitors and allowing them to take the weight off their feet for a few minutes with its contained dimensions, clean design and ergonomics.
But it is also perfect in the home thanks to the beauty of the processing and the materials and its ability to transform into a comfortable sofa bed for guests. The elements of the Vertigo daybed are pared down to their simplest form, each one performing its function with rigour and elegance. The technical mechanism becomes an aesthetic and completely visible feature. The tubular metal structure, with its sophisticated gunmetal grey finish, is the result of in-depth mechanical engineering research. The complex system of levers and joints makes the movement fast and precise. Just hold the handle under the seat and push it down, pulling the bar at the back outwards: the mechanism opens with a pivot motion and the Vertigo turns into a bed.
The backrest and seat structure is made from solid poplar and poplar plywood panels. The metal structure of the mechanism, equipped with gas springs to guarantee a smooth and continuous motion, is made from iron rods with gunmetal grey finish. Padded in polyurethane foam and polyester wadding. The upholstery comes in Pelle Frau® leather or in versions that combine saddle-leather with leather or fabric or leather with fabric, always with tone-on-tone stitching. The rectangular cushions are padded with goose down. The two rectangular cushions enable Vertigo to be used in various ways: positioned at the sides and fixed with precious saddle-leather belts to the two cylindrical cushions, they become comfortable armrests. Placed on the backrest they act as lumbar cushions and become pillows in the open configuration.
