Peter Marino reunites with Poltrona Frau

To create a second collection

Architect Peter Marino, who is known for his signature grungy leather-clad attire, is collaborating with furniture brand Poltrona Frau to produce a collection of pastel-pigmented leather goods

The 'Linea A' collection will not be Marino's first with the brand, as he previously worked with Poltrona Frau in 2007. This collection will be comprised of two and three-seat sofas as well as a club chair, with the general theme being spirited by the city of Miami – a place where the respected architect has been working recently on acquired projects.

Talking about his inspirations, Marino declared,
 "I was energised by the city's re-awakening, and inspired to try to do a collection in these coastal, sand and surf-themed colours that are so different from the brown and black I use continually in my work. This palette is more fun, and the chair maintains the classic proportions that I set out to create when designing my Linea A chairs originally."
