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.
1950’s elegance and style. A project that catalyses and revisits the creative ferment of an era. Designed in 1954 by Gastone Rinaldi with the name of DU 55 P, is now rereleased by Poltrona Frau. A style icon that has retained the power of its designer’s s
uccessful intuition over time. A universal design and, at the same time, the expression of a precise cultural breeding ground. Full and empty spaces, sensual and soft lines. The seat is welcoming and comfortable. The backrest acquires new elasticity. The
supports, thin and sleek, fit perfectly with the shell. Steel structure with moulded polyurethane foam padding. Elastic belts for the springs of the seat and the backrest. Feet in three different finishes: ash in a teak veneer with endpins in antique-fin
ish brass, black or chrome. Upholstery in Pelle Frau® leather or removable fabric. The skilful leatherwork can also be seen in the precious details such as the visible topstitching that runs along the outside edge, creating an elegant decorative effect. T
he seat is stuffed with polyurethane foam. The base has four legs in wenge coloured solid ash wood with a triangular profile. The support for fixing the frame is in black painted steel and the swivel model allows for a 360° rotation.
