Random Fuzzy

- Brad is not exactly well known as a sauna designer and only someone who has seen a sauna he designed would have thought to ask him.  It is more than likely that the cedar bricks and the cave-like concept were originally designed for the sauna(s) in their homes.  His copy protected ideas were executed in the Pollaro workshop where they were likely seen by the Pollaro clients, leading them to ask Brad to design a similar one for them.  So while the sauna featured isn't theirs, it has common key design elements with what they have.
Pollaro had previously posted a bookcase designed by Brad intended for their home.

- If Maleficent 2 is slated to start filming in a week as originally reported, most of their stuff should already be set up in what will be their new home for the next 4 months.  The One and Only Ivan will be concurrently in production, probably in a nearby soundstage.   They haven't been seen out and about in L.A. since March 27.

We are hand shaping the interior of a sauna designed by Brad Pitt. The sauna was completely constructed inside of our workshop, and then deconstructed and transported to France for installation. There were 396 individual pieces of cedar used to create the cave like shape. The ceiling, floor, walls, and seating are carved within a single organic shape. Each cedar brick was custom cut at 5 inches thick and 12 inches wide before being joined with mortise and tenon joints for alignment. It locks together without glue to allow wood movement. Over 2,000 hours went into this project. Pollaro. Your dreams are our command. . . . . . . . #artfurniture #functionalart #ultraluxury #exteriorfurniture #yachtdesign #superyacht #interiordesign #luxuryinteriors #luxuryarchitecture #pitt_pollaro . . . . . . . #hermes #chanel #ferarri #steinwayandsons #porsche #cartier #rollsroyce #mercedesbenz #louisvuitton #bmw #bentley #tiffanyandco #moetchandon #maserati #domainedelaromaneeconti #christies #sothebys #forbes

  • “I am obsessively bent on quality – to an unhealthy degree. It was this obsession that introduced me to Frank Pollaro, who embodies the same mad spirit of the craftsmen of yore, with their obsessive attention to detail.” – Brad Pitt
