Advanced seating systems were provided for the exquisite Villa Blanc, part of the university campus of the Luiss Business School, the management-education school of the Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi sociali Guido Carli. The mansion, redesigned in 1898 in an eclectic style for Baron Alberto Blanc, the Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Crispi Cabinet, is set in a park dotted with small buildings and greenhouses. For the villa (protected since 1922), E4000 study desks by Lucci and Orlandini were selected. These, complete with a fixed top, an electrical cable duct underneath and inter-row bars, were installed with full respect for the floor, on which no fixing holes were drilled. Both padded and laminate versions of the study desks―in three different finishes―were provided for five other small villas throughout the campus, whose rooms are used for teaching. Fully padded and complete with tipup seat, the HL3 chairs by Lucci and Orlandini provided are highly resistant, durable and comfortable.
