Description

Michael Draper's elegantly crafted steel furniture defined high end New Zealand design during the late 20th century. This memorable desk is a classic example of Draper's work. It's an elegant yet functional offering, perfect for any contemporary office or home.

This particular desk / work space was custom made for the offices of the Maritime Museum in Auckland. It was part of a significant commission for Draper, who also created the archival display and storage shelving. These pieces are exceptionally well crafted and built to last many lifetimes.
