Fantoni is 45°: the prominent feature of many of the Fantoni collections since the 60’s – operative and executive – has been the 45° edge that makes the tops appear slimmer and makes individual pieces of perfect size.
The dematerialisation of the panel, the simplicity and the minimalism of Fantoni furniture express a unique vision of the office as an environment in which the absence of external appearance as an end in itself leaves space for action. A philosophy that sees the office not as a place “furnished for working” but as a micro-universe seeking to achieve the well-being of the user.
The development of the Fantoni 45° range started in 1968 with Gino Valle who designed Multipli, a range that sought to go beyond the concept of the office as a “hierarchical structure” in order to arrive at an open and free system that is constantly changing. The principle is in fact based on modularity that is not restricted to dimensions alone, but also relates to the form of the various components, free of any decorative detail or superfluous function, including the handles. Every function of the work station is also broken down into individual elements that can be freely used on their own or in groups.
The fundamental concepts of the Multipli range are to be found in the majority of later Fantoni collections, becoming part of the company philosophy: in the “45” collection of the late 70’s, the 1996 “Mèta 45” collection, the 2006 Multipli oak collection and in the nowadays MultipliCeo collection.
Quaranta5 is therefore the synthesis of a design path that has been consistent over time yet innovative in terms of solutions and design approach.
Refined technology used for the 28 mm tops and sides made from post-formed bars, covered with Microslim on the top and on the edges of the 'long sides'; while the edges and short sides are finished with a continuous film (Kurz edge) in the same shade as the surface of the panel.
