Writing desk for three girls

24 Aug

I was asked to make a writing desk for three girls who are starting school this autumn. The magic appeal of mid-century modern was in this case just too hard to resist: desk is a sequel of a long line of simple and beautiful writing desks, inspired primarily by 1952 Helmut Magg’s desk, but also recent pieces like Phloem Studio’s beautiful Laura desk. So here’s a preview of two desks I just finished, one in walnut with green formica top, and another one in white ash with ivory-coloured top; the third one will be in walnut with black top. I wanted to create a desk that would fit the world of a seven year old girls, while not being too childish, rather a heirloom piece that can follow a person through life. And yes, I wanted it to be subtly feminine, hence the gentle curvy lines and soft contrasts. More photos soon.
