Versatile Desk

With the opportunity of the Salone del Mobile 2013, inside the Cosmit event titled “Project: office to live”, Ron Arad has been invited to interpret with a new key an office furnishing. The result is an unusual writing desk, large 3 meters and high 2,5. Materials are the ones the designer uses for more than twenty years: mirror polished stainless steel welded on the edges with acid and wax treatment. The object appears as a big frame supported by delicate legs which emphasize the lump. The work top is in polished stainless steel and reflects the game created by lighting panels set in the back. These alternate slowly during the ignition, shading off in different luminous colouring, nearly to be an enormous primordial pixel video for which it’s not possible to catch the image and for this reason becomes curious and enchants.
