Charming P.E.L. Tubular Steel Writing Desk and Chair from the United Kingdom, the 1930s. This set is probably designed by Serge Chermayeff (1900–1996) for the 'Practical Equipment LTD'. The table has a rectangular top of ebonized wood on a chrome-plated metal tube base. It has a triple u-shaped base, connected by a triple strap stretcher. The legs are on a black lacquered base. The chair is also made of chromed metal and the seat and backrest are made of artificial leather. The chair is clearly marked. The table and chair are in good condition with normal wear and tear due to their age, however, we love the patina and the signs of its almost 100 years of existence.
