Product description

The Fred desk is a meeting of light, almost ethereal geometries. Roberto Lazzeroni creates a piece of furniture in which the visual pleasure of a continuous saddle-leather surface is underlined by delicate hand-produced incisions and cold markings that create refined graphic decorations. A special procedure makes it possible to curve the front of the saddle-leather without any need for internal supports. The ideal companion of the Fred desk is the Ginger chair, designed to make the study even more complete and harmonious. The structure of the Fred desk is made from solid ash with a wenge or moka stain and triangular cross-section, which highlights its lightness. Same material and finishes also for the drawer that completes the desk, mounted on metal runners with soft closing mechanism. The surface is covered using a single piece of 4 mm-thick Cuoio Saddle Extra leather without any divisions or stitching. The raw edge seam is finished with protective wax and dye. Metal accessories with gunmetal grey galvanic treatment and protective varnish.

Concept

A featherlight structure and the beauty of an uninterrupted leather surface. Warm, natural and attractive. The home desk for an elegant private study area. Roberto Lazzeroni offers his own angle on desk design, inspired by Poltrona Frau’s leather craftsmanship. The medium density fibreboard wooden top, with scratch-resistant black paint, is covered with Saddle Leather Extra, which gives an impression of fluid continuity. A special process creates a single piece with no seam. To strengthen the sense of harmony, the edge is dyed and finished with protective wax. A special craft process allows the front to curve without internal supports. Handmade delicate carvings and cold markings create delicate graphic decorations on its surface. The frame is in wenge coloured solid ash wood with a triangular profile for greater lightness. The same material is also used for the desk drawer, mounted on metal soft-close runners. The front edge is bevelled at 45 degrees for easy opening. The upholstery in Saddle Leather Extra is available in dark brown and camel. Accessories come in galvanised gunmetal with a protective varnish. The Ginger chair is a perfect partner for Fred. Designed by Roberto Lazzeroni it complements and completes your domestic study area.
