From the man behind such gems as the Brionvega RR226 audio system and the Snoopy lamp comes a lesser-known reissue – the Poltrona Frau Sanluca armchair by Achille Castiglioni.

Designed in 1961, it's all about the curves, stripping out non-essential padding to create something that offers optimal support, as well as that other armchair essential – distintive good looks.

The chair has a rigid wooden structure, with upholstery in Pelle Frau leather and feet semi-glossed in black. Not cheap, as you might expect, selling for £3,724.75.
