Luca Scacchetti’s latest contribution to Tecno comes in the form of the Vara collection of desks, meeting tables and cabinets. The name is inspired by the ancient world and use of the carpenter’s trestle as an archetypal, aesthetically essential yet functional support.

In this play on balance and volume, the tops seem to be suspended in the air. This rigorously light design creates a suggestive synthesis between form and function.

Vara is a collection with a powerful visual impact, that consists of elements of guaranteed versatility and instant functionality. The tops are divided into a number of parts even at the dished, solid oak edge, making it possible to transform the desks and meeting tables in an almost infinite variety of ways. The tops are suspended on structures comprising to “L” shaped aluminium legs finished in satin nickel. These can be oriented in various directions and at different angles to create highly functional supports.

The drawer units appear to extend transversely from the top, creating a play on balance in the design and complementing the overall appearance.In addition to the various types of desk and cabinet, the collection also includes a meeting table with an octagonal top (200 x 200 cm), and an extended, 5 metre long table for large meeting or conference rooms.

Possible finishes for the various elements include: matt or gloss lacquer in turtle dove grey, dark brown ceramic oxide, leather, and stained oak. The structure is always in electroplated satin nickel.
