The top is set on four pillars supported by square legs. The symmetric pattern in the metal represents a geometric design of the head of a ram or the decorations repeated in the more ornate picture frames with elements from the classical architecture.The geometric references are subtly stated, drawing after drawing, becoming only mysterious traces now only revealed by name. The tops are marked on the edges by a steel profile, with the horizontal bands drawn from the world of the classical architecture.
The model ARES is available covered by saddle leather (C) or in Ebonywood (E) Walnutwood (N) or Zebranwood (Z): the finishes of the aluminium parts are available in chromed polish, silver painted or matte brass painted.The tops of the desks and the conference tables are composed by a top with thickness mm 30 and by a subtop thickness mm 20, both in black melamine coated panel for the saddle leather version or in particleboard panel for the wood veneered version.The top is available in three different finishes: completely covered by saddle leather with edges in saddle leather, covered by saddle leather with also saddle leather edges and central veneered inlay thickness mm 8 or completely veneered both top and edges. Whereas the edge of the subtop is always veneered in one of the three wood finishes available. Between the top and the subtop is fixed an aluminium profile with the three provided finishes.
