Crassevig at Orgatec 2022
A new vision of work and design
What spaces do we need for tomorrow’s work culture?
The impact of the pandemic and the digital transformation have brought the office everywhere, engaging with increasingly independent professionals and releasing work itself from the obligation of fixed places and times.
While our everyday life quickly adjusts to such future and already current needs,Crassevig draws an overview of the Orgatec 2022 experience, the Trade fair for new working environments that took place in Cologne, Germany from 25th to 29th October 2022.
This has been a common ground to design new visions of work, addressing a flexible, hybrid and increasingly creative working space, beyond offices.
Being Orgatec the most relevant event in such a context, it provided the perfect framework to seek a renewed work culture, reconnecting many different viewpoints, while trying to mould multidimensional environments that are based on cooperation, trust and partnership.
To better address these issues, Crassevig has defined four environments to further focus its future visions on: Meeting, Dining, Reception and Lounge.
Each area lives through essential and versatile designs, interpreted according to their daily use and declined either in their classic forms or in new versions. The Inoko table doubles up to be more suitable for the Meeting area, while Folio lends itself to the Reception area in a taller version; the Lounge spirit of Axel and Pola is counterbalanced by two different variations of Tusca, chair for Dining moments and armchair for the Reception area, where we also find Pola low stool.
The real novelty at Orgatec 2022 was, however, in the Meeting space: here, we unveiled the design of Finna, an innately light chair, as thin as a sheet of paper yet as comfortable as an armchair. Envisioned by the Barcelona-based design studio Ramos & Bassols,the fold-free profile and minimalist elegance of this chair, crafted from recycled plastic, captivates at first glance, creating future-oriented gathering and exchange environments.
Chromatic choices for this Orgatec event responded to the most current trends, as interpreted by Visual Designers Deborah Piana and Marta Basalto, curators of the exhibition booth and its finishes, for whom “Colours today take on a more appealing guise, with the consciousness of being able to navigate through the past and convey to the future“.
The Crassevig palette for this Autumn-Winter season therefore has four basic shades. Red inspired by grape harvests, fine wines and autumn evenings; Mint green with pastel echoes of the 1950s, nostalgic and fresh; Aubergine, a purplish shade verging on grey, vibrant, velvety and mysteriously elegant; finally, Cement Grey with its neutral depth, versatile, concrete and timeless.
The colour balance combined calm, rational and strong notes with increasingly innovative visions of design, for a constant search for well-being and a multi-faceted workspace style.
