Romana’s style is modern, including cabinets and sideboards with a low contemporary outline; but with subtle detailing and soft shapes the range remains understated. Detailing includes shaped legs, whose easy organic lines belie the complexity of manufacture. The shaped edge to the top panels echoes the softness of ercol’s vintage mid-century designs, but cut into the carcass it gives a streamlined feel to the silhouette. A high level of craftsmanship is used in creating the organic shapes in the range. Complex construction is further evidenced in flush, sculpted curves across joints and in the close fit of the curved tops into the recessed tops of the cabinet carcasses.
The wide Romana IR TV unit features a cupboard section for storing digital boxes out of sight, the “IR eye” enables use of remote controllers for digital boxes with the doors closed. The signature soft curve, and the legs have organic curves and chamfers and fluid wave-shaped cut-out recesses provide the door and drawer handles, another design signature of the range. In the cupboard there is an adjustable glass shelf and drawers and doors have soft-close mechanisms and a cut-out in the back panel provides easy access for cables. The receiver in the cabinet works with remote controls operating in the 20 – 70 kHz range.
