Writing table, walnut, Italy, 1950s

Made in Italy, this writing desk is a testament to the design ethos prevalent in the 1950s. The desk showcases the designer's excellent taste in form and material use, featuring walnut wood with beautiful grains and a warm tone that give it a natural expression. Noteworthy elements include drawers with subtly protruding handles, allowing for seamless opening while maintaining a clean and uncluttered appearance. Adjacent to these drawers is an open compartment, adding a sense of lightness to the piece and additional storage space. The base exemplifies mid-20th century design, with a diagonal line that gracefully moves down its length, diverging into two sides to form an elegant aperture. Sculpted bases with dynamic structures and round finishes were popular among artists in the fifties, including Carlo De Carli (1910-1999), Mario Gottardi (1913-2004), Ico Parisi (1916-1996), Silvio Cavatorta (1899-1957), Gianni Saibene, and Paolo Buffa (1903-1970). This desk is a testament to the enduring allure of Italian mid-century design, effortlessly infusing elegance and charm into one's interior space.
