It is the first collection designed by Arch. Umberto Asnago which shows the creation of a product elegant and functional at the same time, with a strong characterization of the support of the working tops. It is called Avatar: a corner dedicated to the virtual community, to the place of meeting and discussion.
A game of assemblies to creating the favorite office, many shapes and few rules: the typical refinement of the Company supports and mixes the deconstructed lines that gives life to an unusual shape. A game of symmetries and asymmetries that well integrates with the rest of the project, but especially maintains a perfect balance between the working top and the floor on which it stands.
The creativity of Asnago excels in the craftsmanship of the Company that provides natural materials and of high quality to cover the finishes of the different models: saddle leather, leather and black walnut wood or ebony wood. The versatility character comes out in the several possible combinations for the working tops as well for the accessories, with the possibility to play with lateral extension, pedestals, doors. Avatar enhances the spaces making the atmosphere warm and welcoming.
