The pure form, the blend of materials, the solidity of a technically-advanced structure, the soul of Poltrona Frau. Lella and Massimo Vignelli design micro architectures rather than straightforward items of furniture to deftly divide and populate the spaces of the most prestigious workplaces.The C.E.O. Cube series includes meeting tables, executive desks, storage units and a bookcase with open compartments. Simple geometries that help showcase the various materials, from fine Pelle Frau® leather to wood and aluminium alloys. The CEO Cube Desk executive desks are asymmetric in design with supporting structure in tubular metal and crossbars in sheet metal with specific niches for cables and wiring. The desktop and leg are made from double MDF panelling with rounded edges, upholstered on the outside with Pelle Frau® leather or finished with a Canaletto walnut veneer. Both versions have a central leather panel. The panels beneath the top are in wood fibre with a texturised black finish. The cube that supports one side of the desk is fitted with a system that allows it to rotate. Equipped with two accessorised drawers and a filing drawer with lock, externally it has an open compartment divided by a grid of polished aluminium shelves. The cube is also upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather. The CEO Cube Easy Desk has an overturned ‘C’ structure and can be enhanced with the addition of a wheeled drawer unit. All CEO Cube desks can also be fitted with aluminium modesty panels fully upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather.
