LAMM sets up the new headquarters of the Demetra Food Academy

The E5000 – Orlandini design study benches for the gastronomy shows of the prestigious Food Academy of the Valtellina company


A hyper-equipped professional kitchen, but with a special feature: the presence of the public. On stage – or rather, in the kitchen – the chefs from Demetra, the company that selects and processes raw materials for the sector, ready to explore culinary techniques and show trade operators how to make the best use of the company’s vast range of products.

The venue for the cooking shows for industry professionals is the hall of the new Food Academy built at Demetra’s headquarters in Talamona, Bassa Valtellina. In the kitchen-theatre, designed by architects Fabio Rabbiosi and Larisa Chadina, LAMM set up the hall by creating the fixed platform and installing its own E5000 – Orlandini design study benches. They are characterised by their broad compositional flexibility and comfortable upholstered seats with extra padding. For the Food Academy, the study benches were installed in straight rows on steps, with a spacing of 58 cm.

The folding type writing surface and the front panels with a length up to the floor were chosen in a silver laminate version. Seats and backrests, upholstered in burgundy leatherette, liven up the environment. Maximum comfort for the seat, also equipped with cushioned automatic return. The integrated system is provided with electrical power through four-module Netbox M4 sockets, two with electrical inserts and two with USB A+C charging sockets.
