the GranTorino is a modular sofa conceived from a grand collaboration between award-winning french designer jean-marie massaud and century-old italian furniture brand Poltrona Frau. featuring a generous array of cleverly functional and compact modules, the GranTorino allows for a seemingly infinite number of combinations to suit any environment, need or fancy.
inspiration from the world of saddlery is expressed in the original version of the GranTorino through hand-cut, hand-shaped saddle extra leather with Pelle Frau® leather or fabric.
despite the opulence of intricate workmanship and premium materials found here, massaud successfully applied a quietly luxurious design language that translates into neat, sophisticated and non-obnoxious forms every part of the way.
as a testament to the excellence of its design, the GranTorino claimed the award for the “Best Room Mates” category at the coveted Wallpaper Design Awards 2014 in London. this decision came from an extremely select panel which featured the likes of the Wallpaper* editorial team, victoria beckham, spike jonze, thaddaeus ropac, michael chow, ron gilad and thom mayne.
having also previously claimed Wallpaper Design Awards for the “Best Sofa” and “Best domestic design” categories in 2007 and 2010 respectively, the collaboration between Poltrona Frau and jean-marie massaud continues to enjoy proven success and admiration throughout the industry.
