The Jobs Bookcase is a freestanding, double-sided bookcase with a fixed configuration. It has thick shelves in mat Rovere Piombo or Tabacco. “T”-shaped dividing elements, made up of a vertical panel in gloss lacquer wood and lower panel in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System, are arranged in an irregular fashion on the shelves. The T cross-sections with lead-colored brushed steel uprights – a distinctive feature of the collection - are attached to the ends of the book case. The cross-sections are arranged in an alternating series of hollows and solids. The vertical elements of the dividers are in Rovere Piombo- or Rovere Tabacco-veneered birch plywood with glossy finish and are perpendicular to the lengths of the shelves and panels. They are upholstered in Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System and run parallel to the length of the shelves.
Rodolfo Dordoni made his debut with Poltrona Frau by designing the Jobs executive furniture system. The name sums up the design philosophy. Dordoni has created a system that reflects a wide range of behaviours, habits and job functions. The desks in the Easy, Executive and President versions are enhanced with closed or open modules in different sizes and are designed to delineate mini and impromptu meeting areas. In fact, a round top can be added to the Easy and Executive desks for meetings. The designer thinks of the workspace as an increasingly connected world. It is a place packed with technology and relationships, in which it is increasingly important to find calm, concentration and balance. JOBS translates into an elegant architectural language. Clean vertical and horizontal lines meet. A deliberate formal neatness which is not disturbed by the ingenious concealed wiring system, which can be customised on the basis of the user’s electrical devices. The cables run inside the central column or the drawer unit and through the top of the desks, making them completely invisible, but at the same time easy to access for any purpose. The craftsmanship and the value of the materials emphasise the executive character of JOBS. The structure of the desks with their characteristic "T" section is in lead satin-finished steel. The Piombo (lead) or Tabacco (tobacco) finishes of the oak veneer on the drawer units, open compartments and work surfaces, are all in perfect harmony. The alternately polished and matte surfaces of the wood create a sense of movement and sophistication. This combination of textures is enriched by Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System, which covers the fronts of the drawers and part of the shelves. A central strip of wood runs along the desk, visually distinguishing the side belonging to the host from that of the guest. The JOBS collection of executive furniture is complete with several versions of a low cabinet with doors or drawers, and by a drawer unit with two drawers, all in oak and Pelle Frau® leather from the Color System, just like the desks. The Jobs collection of management office furniture and desks has now been supplemented with the Jobs Meeting table and the Jobs Bookcase.
