This astonishing desk from the 1960s defies the conventions of design and provides a dazzling lesson in how a desk can be created. A number of things come together such as traditional woodworking, new materials, and daring design that has been eloquently expressed through this creation.

Design

We start at the beginning and for us that is the appearance of this object, namely the front. When we conduct a thought experiment and enlarge the front of the desk to the proportions of a large building, such as a stadium or office building, we are confronted with a rather impressive facade. Due to the large-scale geometric shapes we can’t seem to think of brutalism as a subgenre of the modernist style to indicate this design.

In any case, the designer's intention was to leave a stunning impression. The front is divided into three compartments with horizontal mahogany parts as interruptions. Three off-white panels start a few centimeters from the ground and fold inwards at an angle of one hundred and twenty degrees. There is a black stripe inside and the upper wooden part runs upwards at an angle. The desk consists of a boomerang shape, which increases the dynamics and above all drama.

The top protrudes on both sides in a shape best described as a halved octahedron and is incredibly well made, almost without being able to detect the edges of the veneer work. The white octagonal part of the top is covered with a faux relief leather on which a glass plate rests. This glass is enclosed in the wooden frame. Each side of the desk has four drawers and can be locked individually. There are two open compartments on both sides, which provide ample storage.

Condition

This desk has been restored in our studio a regola d'arte, fully retaining its patina and vintage appearance. Part of this also includes small imperfections such as scratches and wear spots but doesn’t in any way detract from the stunning beauty of this desk.

I recently bought some amazing Artwork from AtKris Studio online. The whole experience was amazing. The transaction was amazingly efficient. The crating and shipping of the artwork to the United States from the Netherlands could not have gone smoother and the customer service was spot on!!  Krista was amazing and I highly recommend AtKris Studio!
