Quaranta5 by Fantoni anticipates the revision of UNI EN – 527/1

Office desks collection Quaranta5 anticipates the revision of European standard UNI EN – 527/1 that requires a work top height of 74 cm ± 20 and a desk depth of less than 80 cm for use of laptop computers or flat screens smaller than 17”.

Tops with edges angled at 45° are a distinctive feature of Fantoni design: from the 1968 Multipli range, exhibited in the New York MoMA, to the 1996 Mèta collection. An evolutionary process that continues with Quaranta5, the range created to offer an excellent work dimension, as always based on simplicity and practicality.

Italian office furniture: Frezza

The FREZZA product, both with its priceless lines destined to furnish executive and president offices and in the most technological and ergonomic clerical and call-center lines, is distinguished by the design, care and attention paid to every detail. This is due an industrialization process which involves all operating units, each specialized in a different process, to ensure a better industrial specialization, better process control, and above all quality.

Recently the My Desk line, designed by architect Sergio Lion, has been nominated for the “German Design Award 2010“, the Oscars of German Awards assigned with the support of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology.
