ACTIU LAUNCHES NOOM, CARBON, TALENT AND WHASS
At Orgatec, Actiu released the new NOOM Range by ALEGRE DESIGN, an extensive range of soft seating solutions, which combines armchairs and stools with soft and warm geometric volumes to fit organically both in contract spaces and work environments.
Ambition and the continuous search for new limits has led Actiu to try out new productive processes and materials with values and vision of the future. “We have wanted to reinterpret the applicability of the lightness and resistance of carbon fibre of other technological sectors in order to create a different product, with seductive shapes, which brings exclusivity beyond the physical.” The result is KARBON by ITEMDESIGNWORK an iconic piece which provides new stackable chair made out of carbon fibre.
The new TALENT range by ALEGRE DESIGN is a system of collective, mobile, folding, stacking and elevating tables that enable versatility to multipurpose spaces (eg training and educational areas). The new WHASS stackable chair by ITEMDESIGNWORK has been designed for intensive use in flexible spaces. A multifunctional, lightweight and easy to move product that can be stacked easily on a cart with up to 30 units from a monoblock carcass. It can therefore be stored in the minimum possible space, a feature that makes it an ideal choice for conference halls and multi-purpose spaces.
