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.
The pure shape, the blend of materials, the solid, technically-advanced structure, the soul of Poltrona Frau. Microarchitecture rather than simple furnishing, able to divide and populate the space of the most qualified workplaces. The CEO Cube series comp
rises meeting tables, managerial desks, storage units and an open bookcase. The clear-cut geometric design blends with the materials, from the noble Frau leather, to the wood and aluminium alloys. The Desk structure is asymmetric with a tubular support fr
ame and sheet metal crossbars, specifically designed to accommodate cables and wiring. The top and leg are created with a roundededge double panelling, externally upholstered in Pelle Frau ® leather from the Color System or veneered in a Canaletto walnut
(29) finish. Both versions have a leather central panel. The panels beneath the top are created from wood fibre in a textured black finish. The cube that supports one side of the desk is fitted with a special system allowing it to rotate. It is designed
with two storage drawers and a filing drawer with lock. Externally, there is an open compartment divided by a polished aluminium grid of shelves. The cube is also upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System. The Easy Desk has an upturned ‘C’
structure and can be enhanced by the addition of a wheeled drawer unit. All CEO Cube desks can also be fitted with optional extras such as the aluminium modesty panel fully upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather.
