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.
A collection of storage units for any room in the home. Low and High cabinet for the living room, this one also available in the drinks cabinet version. Deliberately lean design, precious materials. Formal minimalism and sophisticated finishes for an across-the-board collection, an easy match for all the Poltrona Frau furnishings yet with its own very defined personality.Its most distinctive feature is the vertical line that neatly separates the two doors. The base takes the form of a moka-coloured solid ash stand that brings out the visual lightness of the piece. The warm and intense tones of Cuoio Saddle Extra leather or Cuoio Saddle leather envelop the exterior. And in an evocative contrast, when opening the cabinet there is the surprising brightness of the extra light natural maple that completely covers the compartments and the inside surface of the doors, creating movement and depth. The supporting structure is in solid ash and birch plywood. The top is in ash with a moka finish or Emperador marble with a glossy finish or Calacatta gold marble with a glossy or semi-glossy finish. The rubber-capped steel feet can be adjusted. The fronts of the drawers, mounted on metal runners with soft closing mechanism, are also upholstered in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather or Cuoio Saddle leather. Precious contrast or tone on tone stitching refines the saddle leather cover on the surfaces of the cabinet. If desired, the rear can be in moka-stained ash or upholstered with saddle leather.There are two alternatives for the interior fittings of the High cabinet. A classical and functional arrangement with three large drawers and a system of shelves and surfaces.Or an accessorised version to becomes a stylish mobile bar. It has sophisticated interiors with bottle-holder trays, glass shelves for glasses and multi-purpose trays upholstered in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather or Cuoio Saddle leather. Bronzed mirrors on the back wall embellish the entire effect. Opening the doors, a warm diffused light sets off the interior by way of an LED lighting system automatically activated by sensors.
