The Ren furnishing accessory collection is the result of studies of the home entryway by Neri & Hu. This collection showcases the nature of the domestic throughway, with a series of objects that are hybrid in their function and materials and it comprises of free-standing mirror coat rack, small table, console table, wall-mounted mirror coat rack and valet stand. Each product of the collection is in wood, brass and leather and are refined in the manufacture and shape, welcoming the guests with the undistinguishable elegance of Poltrona Frau. For each side of these accessories, Neri & Hu has copied the shape of the Chinese ideogram “ren”, which means “person, human being”.
