The latest additions to the spring/summer series demand discovery. The clean office has an almost leathery, pleasing surface, consisting of oak that is charred to black, then waxed and hand-polished until fine grains of oak just barely reappear.
The backside surprises: almost invisible, awry metal-plated layers are welded to form a bellied body with a subtile descend into tender hammered legs. The coppered surface has a colorful, alternating patina with contrasting edges and corners, where the different sheets of metal adjoin. Only a tiny drawer interjects into the fine line where wood and metal meet.
This reverse side almost seems to resemble the frozen thoughts once contemplated at such desk.
