85 E5000 study benches – Orlandini design Fixed seating
Gracing the auditorium of the ALMA international culinary school, where the next generation of budding chefs learn and train, is the modern style of the E5000 study desk by Orlandini design. This world-leading school is located in the ducal palace of Colorno, often described as the “Versailles of the Dukes of Parma”. For the auditorium, inspired by the principles of the father of modern Italian cookery, Gualtiero Marchesi, LAMM supplied 85 study desks and a fixed tribune around 75 square metres in size. The study desks have a tipup writing table in silver-coloured laminated plywood, and seats and backrests with generous padding and cornflower-blue faux leather upholstery. The seats have a silver-coloured metal frame and a silent, controlled and damper-decelerated closing mechanism. Every writing table has cable conduit and electrical sockets. These were installed on a fixed tribune made of metal and fitted with step lighting and a balustrade made of layered, hardened glass with ground edges.
