Michael Draper Desk / Work Space
An iconic offering from one of New Zealand's most gifted designers.
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.
