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.
Jean-Marie Massaud deconstructs and reconstructs the classic dining table chair according to the principles of radical architecture. The JEFF project is launched. Perfectly recognisable primary geometries. A circle for the seat. A cylindrical profile for the backrest. Four intersecting lines for the base. Elements that meet in a new vision. An incredibly modern seat. Almost a sculpture. A noble and sophisticated presence that distinguishes and characterises the space. Clean and distinct forms, soft and precious materials and manual craftsmanship that make it a piece of art.
The backrest can be upholstered entirely in leather or with a leather exterior and fabric interior in adjustable aesthetic and material combinations. The blade-like legs are in titanium painted steel. The padding is rich, enveloping and, at the same time, compact.
The collection includes three highly architectural pieces to which new elements are gradually added in a modular crescendo. From the stool, a refined circumference positioned on top of a stem, to the armchair without armrests to which the cylindrical backrest is added, and through to the armchair with armrests, inserted at the sides like minimalist straight lines.
