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.
Armrests, seat and back become the lightest of fluid, graphic shapes. The profile is made from tubular steel. Weight and gravity are no longer determined by the lower part of the structure, but by the top from which the seat hangs. The shell is a continuous surface, a sort of triangle made from thin steel sheet, completely covered in saddle-leather. Its ends are fixed to the tubes with visible screws. The final result is a chair that floats in space, almost like a futuristic swing or a conceptual sculpture. Lightly padded in polyurethane foam, thicker on the seat and lumbar cushion, the shell is upholstered in Cuoio Saddle Extra leather, with visible contrasting hand-stitching. Gunmetal grey galvanic treatment for the steel tubes creates an even more ethereal effect.
