S 285 Desk

Manufactured by Thonet|Designed by Marcel Breuer|Availbility: In stock

THE TUBULAR STEEL DESK S 285: AN UNSURPASSED PIECE OF MODERN DESIGN This tubular steel desk is a successful example of the Bauhaus' programmatic claim of combining art and technology into a formal unit. The tabletop and storage elements made of varnished or stained wood harmonically fit in with the tubular steel design. The supporting frame consists of a single line; the wooden elements seem to float in it. The simple piece of furniture, which is formally balanced in its proportions, represents an expressive piece of contemporary history known as "The New Objectivity." There are various versions of this model, either with drawers lockable with central lock, open shelf compartments or in a "Pure Materials" version with oiled walnut veneer. The desk's drawers have with a self-closing drawer track. The desks are also available in a mirror-inverted version - please call to request this version or to inquire on more finish or configuration options. 14 - 18 week lead time.
