H_O Desk Lac

The H_O LAC (varnished) collection includes two desks with a very thick top. The top of the President and Executive desks is made of poplar plywood sandwiched between MDF boards. The one-piece, no joints top is varnished in glossy white NCS 1002-Y or glossy black 9000-N. Upon request, the desks can be supplied with the top varnished in the customer's choice of colour.

In order to varnish the top with a glossy finish in the chosen colour, customers are requested to provide to Poltrona Frau an international colour code (RAL or NCS) or a colour sample on a physical substrate of at least 50x50 mm to allow proper scanning using suitable devices.

The desk mat is made of MDF board lined with Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System, matching the leather lined metal leg. The desk rests on the floor on feet made of plastic material. On the side opposite the leg, the desks feature a natural finish white travertine or slate column. The drawer unit can be placed on the right or the left of the user, always on the side of the column; the unit's poplar plywood frame is covered with LouroPreto or Ash-tinted oak veneer. In the standard configuration, the drawer unit has a box drawer and a file drawer. An opening on the top, near the column, allows the passage of cables. H_O Lac desks can be accessorised with a courtesy panel lined with Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System.

About Designer
Claudio Silvestrin

Born in 1954, he studied in Milan in A.G. Fronzoni school, later in London where he works nowadays, at the Architectural Association. His work deals with day to day objects, domestic and commercial interiors, art galleries and houses. Clients include Giorgio Armani, Illycaffe, Anish Kapoor, Calvin Klein, Cappellini, Poltrona Frau and the Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo for whom he has designed the museum in Turin. A book about his work has been written by Franco Bertoni and published by Birkhauser. His way of working, severe but not extreme, contemporary but timeless, researchs a minimalism that is not a style, but a way of being, a strong reaction against noise and disorder. His work is noble and paesant, intellectual and silent, careful about perfect details. Claudio Silvestrin's integrity, clarity of mind, inventiveness and concern for details is reflected in his rigorous minimal architecture: austere but not extreme, contemporary yet timeless, calming but not ascetic, strong but not intimidating, elegant but not ostentatious.
