Description

It’s been called “working art” since first exhibited by Charles and Ray Eames in 1949 at the Detroit Institute of Arts. This highly functional and stylish desk provides a spacious work surface, file drawer, and a healthy dash of mid century styling.

The steel cross-supports and uprights give the units an industrial feel, and the plywood drawer fronts and shelves reinforce the furniture's mid-century modern appearance.

Elevated above steel legs with angular cross-supports, the vibrantly layered plywood desk softens the industrial feel and offers an enticing place to get work done. This is a sculptural, geometric piece enjoyed from all angles.

This particular offering is an authentic licensed edition, produced by the Herman Miller in the early 2000's.
