The Arki family expands with new versions

A preferct balance

 

With its practical, height-adjustable top, the Arki-Table Adjustable Desk contributes to the creation of a functional and dynamic office space. Designed as a single workstation, it allows the user to work both standing up and sitting down, for optimal comfort and ergonomics.

Two electric actuators, connected to a control unit and activated by a controller placed under the top, move as one, allowing the user to choose the ideal height of the top, from 740 to 1140 mm.

Available in white or black full colour and in three shades of grey, the Arki-Table Adjustable Desk has an ultra-thin 6 mm solid laminate top, as well as steel trestle legs and an extruded aluminium support.

The cable access, placed between the top and the panel, allows to anchor the sound absorbing panel upholstered in fabric which divides one desk from another. The panel can be easily removed and cleaned.

Arki-Desk adds a new element to the Arki family, offering a simplified interpretation of the collection’s distinctive features. The Arki-Desk’s clean, linear design makes it particularly versatile and suitable for flexible and functional modern corporate and home offices.

Steel or solid oak trestle legs are connected together by a steel support, to which the top is fixed for added stability. A more casual and playful version of the Arki-Desk with a coloured frame is also available.

Arki-Bench expands the Arki collection yet further, reinterpreting the industrial look in a functional key. 

This linear, modular bench is characterised by a solid laminate seat and distinctive trestle legs in steel or solid oak, joined together by a steel support for added stability.

Arki-Bench is the ideal solution both for office spaces and for common areas in the contract and hospitality sectors. The version with steel legs is also suitable for outdoor use.

BUDDY HUB

Friendly spirit

 

In line with the latest trends for office spaces with the wellbeing of workers in mind, the functional and efficient Buddy Hub, designed by Busetti Garuti Redaelli, offers an isolated alcove that encourages concentration and ensures acoustic and visual privacy.

The latest addition to the Buddy family - in which a wrap-around, sound absorbing panel envelops the seat in a sort of enclosed niche - maintains the friendly and playful design of the successful collection of poufs first launched in 2017 while increasing their versatility.

The rounded shapes and bold volumes of the seat and backrest are supported by the slender lightweight frame that raises Buddy Hub off the ground, lightens its overall appearance, promoting functionality that makes cleaning and maintenance operations easier.

Hugely versatile, Buddy Hub is available as an armchair or sofa, and can be used as a quiet, sound-proofed workstation. It is also possible to place two units opposite each other and to join them by means of a panel to which a table can be attached, thus creating an informal meeting space or break out area.  

A large seat, in polyurethane foam supported by elastic belts, and a cosy backrest offer exceptional comfort while working or when enjoying a private moment of relaxation away from the surrounding environment. This makes Buddy Hub suitable not just for office spaces, but also for lounge areas and waiting rooms in the contract and hospitality sectors.

YPSILON CONNECT

Multifunctional panel

 

Ypsilon Connect is an elegant and functional free standing, sound absorbing space divider. Designed for the contract industry, this product by Jorge Pensi preserves the formal qualities and iconic characteristics of the Ypsilon table collection.

Featuring clean lines and easily placeable in a variety of settings, Ypsilon Connect is characterised by acoustic panels that are shaped around a structure formed by two die-cast aluminium bases and extruded aluminium columns.

One of the greatest strengths of the Ypsilon Connect lies in its extensive customisation possibilities, thanks to which users can create ever new layouts and consequently manage their spaces more effectively.

In large open-plan environments, the panels can be aligned to each other to form a partition wall to create welcoming office spaces or functional training and meeting rooms.

The Ypsilon Connect is an extremely versatile piece of furniture that changes appearance according to needs by simply adding accessories such as whiteboards, shelves or coat hangers on any of its sides. This multifunctional panel can be also wired to enable the installation of a TV screen holder. Available with and without castors, the Ypsilon Connect is particularly lightweight and easy to handle.

TEMPS LOW BACK

Time is precious

 

In designing Temps, Jorge Pensi’s aim was to create a user-friendly chair, one which nevertheless has specific features and a clear identity for different working environments. Characterised by a lower backrest, the latest version of Temps executive chair is designed to seamlessly fit both in office meeting rooms and residential settings.

Pure and elegant, Temps low back has a striking feature in its height-adjustable base made in die-cast aluminium. The chair guarantees excellent ergonomics and comfort thanks to its weight-activated, synchro-tilt mechanism that is able to regulate the degree of tilting autonomously according to the user’s body weight. Its anatomical shape encourages good posture. The seat and backrest are comfortable and warm with its polyurethane injected foam padding, cosily embracing the person sitting on the chair. An injection-moulded polypropylene shell fits around the seat and contains a mechanism that embraces the user’s lower back ensuring ergonomy and comfort, while the padding inserted in the polypropylene shell designs a continuous line.

Two minimal, simple arms made from polypropylene help accentuate the concepts of lightness and dynamism.

TOA conference and desk tables

Strength and lightness

 

The Toa table combines a technical-industrial style with decorative allure, giving life to a functional and evocative product. With its name Robin Rizzini pays tribute to his Genoese origins, the dialect for “table” being in fact “toa”.

Toa's main features are its tapered bridge legs made of die-cast aluminium, which are thinner at the base and widen up towards the “T” element that supports the top.

The table’s stability and strength are guaranteed by two steel bars that join the two legs to the top. Lightweight and minimalist, the Toa table is characterised by a solid die-cast aluminium frame in a fluid geometric design, suitable to support large sized tops.

Available in smaller sizes and with a decentralised cable access, it’s equally suitable for “light” offices, executive rooms and residential spaces.

Moreover, being endlessly modular in length and width, it’s the perfect choice for work spaces and it can also be used to create different settings.

The Toa table can be used as a desk in an elegant office or as a conference table for brainstorming and networking activities. And in the largest version with three bridge legs, it serves as an efficient boardroom table. Furthermore, Toa can be used to accommodate multiple temporary workstations. Another feature of this versatile and multi-tasking table facilitates the management of cables through three different types of top-access power connection units, which can be tailor made according to the customer's requirements.

The table is available in playful, colourful versions, or in monochromatic colours, with white, black or light grey tops, or again with more refined finishes, such as titanium paired with a fenix, compact wood-finish or an oak-veneered top.

TOA FOLDING SCREEN

A table divider

 

The Toa Folding Screen, designed by Robin Rizzini, is a sound absorbing desktop panel that separates and defines spaces.

Designed to meet the mobility and layout requirements of modern work spaces, it also responds to current social distancing needs. Moreover, it’s also the perfect solution for home working spacial arrangements. 

Given that it is extremely lightweight, the screen can be folded with ease and moved from one place to another, creating a defined and sound-proofed workstation.

The inner metal structure is upholstered in fabric with a zip that makes it easy to remove, clean and maintain.

Its panels can be arranged in a “U” shape to define a single 1 m workstation, in a “S” shape for two facing workstations, or in a “L” shape to extend your workspace to 1.5 m. Multiple screens can also be used in a variety of layouts to create multiple workstations on a single table. When not in use, the Toa Folding Screen can be easily folded and stored away on a bookshelf, given that it only measures just 4 cm in thickness.

Pedrali working spaces 2020

Dynamic, modular furniture solutions for working formats of the future

 

In recent years, office furnishing trends and its environments have gone through considerable changes. The line between home and work is becoming increasingly fine and work spaces have taken on new configurations: open plan offices continue to emerge promoting interaction and fluid exchange. Today, however, the Covid-19 health emergency has transformed such needs: office layouts need to be thought out differently and workstations redesigned. The significant change in lifestyle that we are currently experiencing makes it essential to create new reference models and new ways of interaction.

The office needs to become dynamic and its furniture solutions flexible, functional and sustainable, in order to create tailor made, modular work spaces that can be rearranged according to the needs of the moment. Meeting rooms that can be transformed into multiple workstations, informal meeting spaces obtained by alcoves ensuring acoustic and visual privacy, new areas for on site or remote training - these are just some of the solutions that can redefine the role of the office. In addition to creating separate spaces, desk partitions and office dividers, now more than ever, are essential for promoting social distancing ensuring healthy environments.

This separation, however, should occur within cosy areas with a high-level of aesthetic quality, where users can both concentrate and relax.

This has given rise to spaces that enable greater interconnection, while also complying with current distancing protocols; spaces that can be reconfigured with ease throughout the day and combined with remote smart working.

In configurating new spaces, whether at home or in the office, furniture plays a fundamental role. The goal is to select products that are able to preserve the people wellbeing, made from innovative materials that stand out for their antibacterial properties and facilitate regular cleaning and sanitising.

In order to meet these needs, Pedrali has designed a new line of versatile, innovative solutions conceived for the new scenarios and changing trends of tomorrow’s workspaces.

Think green: a sustainable revolution

Pedrali inaugurates “recycled grey”, its first chairs made from 100% recycled plastic

 

Sustainable design is the ultimate purpose of every activity aimed at reducing our impact on the environment. Designing with nature is about minimising the negative impact of the design process and generating high quality products that are able to withstand the test of time, in terms of style and performance, while putting the health and comfort of people first.

In line with this philosophy, Pedrali has launched its first collections made entirely from recycled plastic material. This extraordinary revolution has enabled the 100% Made in Italy company to achieve yet another important milestone in its quest for environmental sustainability: a new material made 50% from plastic material post-consumer waste and 50% from plastic material industrial waste.

Plastic material post-consumer waste comes from products that have been used and then duly recycled by consumers, such as plastic bottles or food packaging. As for the use of plastic material industrial waste, this is not new to Pedrali, which has always reintegrated part of its own industrial waste back into the production process. The industrial element of the company’s new 100% recycled material comes from plastic waste, containers and films. 

Pedrali has identified 50% of post-consumer waste as the ideal blend to guarantee high quality products featuring the high resistance and durability levels required of contract furniture, given its substantial and prolonged use.

To ensure these properties, the furniture made from the new 100% recycled material is subjected to resistance tests to prove they can withstand prolonged exposure to light and temperatures between +50°C and -10°C without effects. Moreover, the furniture’s antistatic finishes are easy to clean, to maintain, and - more importantly, given the ongoing pandemic - to sanitise and disinfect.

All the products made from this new sustainable material share a characteristic grey hue, a neutral colour chosen to even out and conceal any imperfections typical of recycled materials. Given the name of “recycled grey”, the products are marked with the pad-printed inscription “100% recycled”, to emphasize their eco-friendliness.

One of the two new products made from this new material is the Remind “recycled grey” chair, designed by Eugeni Quitllet. Odo Fioravanti, instead, has created a “recycled grey” version of his Babila XL armchair.

The designers, right from the design phase, think about the possibility to develop a series of products marked by enveloping comfort and an optimised use of resources. Plastic seats for the contract industry must be light and easy to move, and yet extremely resistant. This can be achieved by creating empty volumes using air moulding technology, as in the case of the Remind chair. The Babila armchair, instead, features polypropylene in various thicknesses, determined by the studies and tests carried out by Pedrali in collaboration with Odo Fioravanti.

The 100% recycled body of the new Babila XL “recycled grey” may be fitted with wooden legs, making it a 100% green product.

In order to pursue its environmental sustainability commitment yet further, every Pedrali product made from wood is FSC® C114358 certified, certifying  the use of wood sourced from responsibly and adequately managed forests, in line with strict environmental, social and economic standards.

Moreover, since 2018 the company has been using water-based paints composed mostly of plant-derived resins for its wood collections. Made from renewable materials sourced from the refining of waste plant substances, the new paints used by Pedrali guarantee a substantial decrease in VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds), chemical compounds contained in normal paints that evaporate at room temperature and can cause serious harm to human health, as well as contribute to air pollution.

This is just another step in Pedrali’s ongoing journey towards environmental sustainability, alongside planning - during both the design and the production phase - the optimised use of raw materials, the rationalisation of resources, the reuse and/or recycling of waste, and  controlling  emissions.

This commitment to continuous improvement is demonstrated by the significant investments made by the company to certify its products and systems. The company’s system certifications include UNI EN ISO 9001:2015 for its quality management system and UNI EN ISO 14001:2015 for its sustainable environmental management, which is extended to every phase of the production process.

Another important achievement lies in having measured Pedrali’s Carbon Footprint, calculating the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) caused both directly and indirectly by the organisation in a given time span. “By analysing how much CO₂ we produce, we can determine the impact of our entire production cycle on the environment. With concrete data to hand, we can define continuous, monitorable and therefore achievable improvement goals,” says Giuseppe Pedrali.

At a time characterised by excessive exploitation of natural resources, committing to social responsibility is not just about making “green” choices concerning production and the ethics of a company’s products; but it is about making environmental sustainability a core element of the company’s corporate culture, and a key medium-to-long-term business objective.

L’île du confort

 

“During the design phase, we wanted to include some ‘unexpected’ elements, capable of providing rhythm, yet surprising and able to interpret a space. Ila is in fact a small sculpture.” (Patrick Jouin).

The new, elegant and high-quality Ila armchair designed by Patrick Jouin is a refined piece of furniture with a strong personality, expressing utmost comfort, softness and sensuality. Its curved, flexible lines trace out a comfortable and enveloping silhouette.
The smooth, taut exterior in rigid polyurethane almost cocoons the user in its large volumes, allowing a moment of relaxation and escape from everyday life. This sense of protection is augmented by the inner side of the backrest and seat in flexible polyurethane foam, which adapts to the human body and envelops it just like a soft embrace.

Ila’s versatility lies in the possibility of choosing a geometric and swivelling central base in the shape of a cone section, whose inclined design evokes dynamism and lightness, or a four-legs steel tube frame available in different colours and finishes.

Moreover, the version with a large headrest accentuates the sense of escaping from everyday life and adds character to the armchair. The headrest is shaped to create a private niche, pleasantly muffling external sounds and noises.

Care and meticulous attention to detail are also highlighted by the fact that the Ila armchair was designed to be disassembled at the end of its life cycle, allowing for the correct disposal of its components. The seating is composed by three elements which allow the cover renewal, giving second life to the product.
