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 Downtown collection is now even more complete and versatile. Jean-Marie Massaud has designed three new conference armchairs to go with the President, Executive, Managerial, Meeting and Visitor models. There are more upholstery options and all the armchairs in the collection can now be covered with the customer's own fabrics, as well as with Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System.
The common denominator for the Downtown project continues to be the synthesis between timeless style and cutting-edge ergonomic performance. Texture, shape and material communicate intimate, personal elegance. The workspace becomes a landscape for living and lifestyle.
The three Conference models, ideal for meeting areas, have the same soft, enveloping shell design and offer three new leg systems. Swivel Conference with 4-spoke base and 360° swivel with a mechanism that returns it to its starting point. Sled-base Conference with elegant blade cross-section. Bridge Conference, with armrests that expand, envelop the shell on both sides and reach down to the ground, complete with wheels. The spoke and sled bases come in chrome steel, or painted black or titanium-colour. It has a moulded polyurethane foam shell and uses the same material for the padding, with differentiated density for comfort zones and quilt in polyester wadding. The Bridge model has matt black metal plates connecting the back and armrests.
