startup – home desk and secretaire
The fluid design and subtle accents reflect the ethos of the International Style while offering a contemporary finish. The chrome-plated sled-base frame is constructed by the careful bending of 25mm steel tubing, a task that demands considerable craftsmanship.
Visible tube ends are neatly capped and chromed. The work surface is blockboard with a real oak veneer, to which a wax finish has been applied.
The dimensions and functions have been chosen to ensure that this piece of furniture can accommodate all types of home and office activities.
The two stainless steel penholders integrated into the shelf offer space for writing utensils.
The shelf can be used to support a monitor, which can be installed in a slightly raised position and at a healthy distance to the user.
A large fully extendible drawer with three main compartments as well as two smaller lateral parts help to ensure a tidy workplace. The drawer is made of oak and features a quiet self-closing slide mechanism. As the slide mechanism is hidden in the sidewalls, the drawer appears to float open with no obvious support, a feature which highlights the lightness of the entire table.
