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 featherlight structure and the beauty of an uninterrupted leather surface. Warm, natural and attractive. The home desk for an elegant private study area.
Roberto Lazzeroni offers his own angle on desk design, inspired by Poltrona Frau’s leather craftsmanship.
The medium density fibreboard wooden top, with scratch-resistant black paint, is covered with Saddle Leather Extra, which gives an impression of fluid continuity. A special process creates a single piece with no seam. To strengthen the sense of harmony, the edge is dyed and finished with protective wax. A special craft process allows the front to curve without internal supports.
Handmade delicate carvings and cold markings create delicate graphic decorations on its surface. The frame is in wenge coloured solid ash wood with a triangular profile for greater lightness. The same material is also used for the desk drawer, mounted on metal soft-close runners. The front edge is bevelled at 45 degrees for easy opening.
The upholstery in Saddle Leather Extra is available in dark brown and camel. Accessories come in galvanised gunmetal with a protective varnish. The Ginger chair is a perfect partner for Fred, it complements and completes your domestic study area.
