Oak, Poplar, Laminated Wood
Elegant and intentionally rising above ideas of fashion, H_O is a collection of refined furniture of exclusive taste which Claudio Silvestrin designed in response to the need for a prestigious and tastefully luxurious Home Office. The collection consists of a desk with drawers, available in two different sizes; a pc table; a console table with a thick top; a cupboard; and three tables of different sizes, two circular and one oval, to meet the different needs of social encounters and work. The bookcase, which is modular, is based on a combination of three base elements – drawer, column and shelf – that can be used in different configurations. The table top is a sandwich in poplar plywood with an MDF exterior and metal reinforcements. The surfaces of the tables, desks, cabinet, console table and bookcase are in dove grey or coffee-coloured leather. The supporting columns of the desks and tables are in Valcamonica Porphyry, in chestnut-purple, or in White Porphyry, with white-beige tints. The wood of the shelves and frames come in ash-tinted oak for the light-coloured leather or stone combinations, or in Louro Preto for the darker versions in the collection. The entire collection is upholstered in Tortorà or Caffè-colours hide. In the ‘Square’ versions, the basic upholstery is finished with a 16x16 cm square ‘tone-on-tone’ design. The central part of the Oval Meeting Table top is pre-prepared with the possibility of opening up 4 containers to hold electrical installations.
H_O desks have very thick tops and are available in two sizes. The desk top is made of poplar plywood sandwiched between MDF boards, veneered with thick Ash-tinted oak or Louro Preto wood veneer.
The top features longitudinal grout lines, giving the surface a slat-like appearance. The desk mat is made of MDF board lined with saddle leather in dove grey or coffee colour. The metal leg is lined with leather in a colour matching the desk mat and the fronts of the drawer unit.
On the side opposite the leg, the desks feature a Valcamonica porphyry or white porphyry 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 veneered with Ash-tinted oak or Louro Preto veneer. The drawer fronts are lined with leather. In the standard configuration, the drawer unit has a box drawer and a file drawer. The side of the drawer unit features longitudinal grout lines, giving the surface a slat-like appearance. An opening on the top, near the column, allows the passage of cables. H_O desks can be accessorised with a courtesy panel lined with matching leather.
H_O desks are only available in a light or dark coloured version. In the light version, the whitish-beige colour of the white porphyry column is matched with dove grey saddle leather and the Ash-tinted oak wood tone. In the dark version, the brown-purple tones of the Valcamonica porphyry column is matched with coffee coloured saddle leather and Louro Pre
