The new informal

Will we still work at desks in future? That was one of the many questions asked at Orgatec 2018 in Cologne. We review the trade fair.
1919 takes its cue from model 128, which made its debut in Renzo Frau’s 1919 catalogue. The 128 reproduced the opulent features of rococo armchairs, with the addition of a special extension to serve as footrest and a small book stand supported by an arm a
nchored to the side. The present-day version of this armchair, reproducing the big “ears” of the seatback and the large rounded arms with plissé finish, is even more stylish, and the book stand has been replaced with a brass tray. The design of the back i
s achieved by means of manual quilting, the bearing structure is made of seasoned Beech. The seat is stuffed with rubberised horsehair, the seatback and arms use vegetal horsehair fashioned by hand. The seat, back and arms all use biconic steel springs ti
ed manually and rested on jute belts. Upholstery is available in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System or in Heritage or RAF leather. The upholstery is also available in Pelle Frau leather from the Color System or Heritage leather for the structure an
d in fabric for the seat cushions.
