Concept

The new officescape by Metrica

From the partnership between Fantoni and Metrica comes a new, innovative, contemporary and flexible design: created for the contract market, the Woods collection offers excellent comfort and all the aesthetic quality of home-oriented products.

Wood, the ultimate natural material, bursts into the Fantoni office world.

Woods is a complete series of tables, created following reflection on new ways of working and on how the workplace is changing. It offers a range of modules, from the “focus” station to a shared one, and from meeting areas to collaboration spaces.

Woods includes large executive and meeting tables, fixed office desks and height-adjustable workstations. A collection that can switch from clerical to executive simply by changing the combination of tops and legs, with an interplay that maintains consistency of design and allows for numerous different layouts.

The key feature of this innovative design is the use of solid beech or oak wood. This material gives a sense of naturalness and visual comfort that is the perfect complement to the comfort offered by the performance of the table, which can be used in both a standing and a sitting position.

The sloped design of the leg gives the table a simple yet sophisticated look, comprising two telescopic cylindrical elements, one of which is in wood. Inside it is an electronic mechanism that effortlessly adjusts the height of the table top.
The table's electrical connections are hidden under the top, while the modesty panel can be fitted with storage accessories and with a USB socket for recharging electronic devices.

Lucio Quinzio Leonelli, President & Managing Partner of Metrica, talks about the partnership between the two businesses, “We believe that what attracted Fantoni to work with Metrica was initially our outstanding design practice, which guarantees design sensitivity, technical competency and technological innovation, combined with a vision of the market and of the end customer”.

Robin Rizzini, Chief Designer & Partner of the design studio, continues, “Designing for Fantoni is deeply satisfying, because it is a historic business in the office furniture world. One of its great strengths lies in its family-based culture, which focuses on each design with an all-round approach that never loses sight of all the different aspects, and indeed considers every aspect to be essential: from the concept to the prototype, production and communication.”
