Bay Executive and managerial desks
Bay is the line of office furniture minimalist and refined. The Bay executive furnitures have a single, rigorous guiding idea: simplicity. Bay is the absolute and refined minimalism. The "Appearing" is banned. The executive furniture Bay is the essence of the function, at the service of the manager who wants sobriety and elegance. A trend is emerging every day: lightness and oriental simplicity: the object almost disappears since the true subject is the person. Lines are designed as harmony with nature.
Bay has lightweight structures, to make the workplace streamlined even in the appearance. It's a kind of aesthetic ecology that creates harmony to facilitate efficiency. The appeal to the East, and in particular to the Zen philosophy, is the fil rouge of the Bay furnishing line.
That essential geometry, which becomes a life and thinking style, suggests it: simple lines, designed for the essence, not for the appearance. A style, a directional furniture, which is addressed to a person who knows, who doesn't not have to appear. This manager is the subject, the manager is the value, not what surrounds its figure. Simplicity is the frame.
