Secretariat Desk in the Mezzanine
Likely intended for secretariat or collegiate use, this writing desk joins two working spaces with organizational caddies and a built-in brass lamp in the middle. While the caddy joins the spaces, it also privatizes the work done on each side. The caddy is simple in design with rounded edges to offer minimal embellishment. The banner of the desk expands on detail with panels of floral relief on each side. The banner graduates into each leg with scrolling edges that appear to be dripping downward, suiting the rich red finish of the wood. The legs are narrow with segments shaped on a lathe to achieve lightness while conjoining footrests ensure stability.
