Paolo Piva for B&B 'Arcada' Desk in Leather and Burl
Paolo Piva for B&B, executive desk model 'Arcada', stainless steel, burl, leather, glass, brass, Italy, 1985
This rare desk is designed by Austrian-Italian architect and designer Paolo Piva (1950-2017) for B&B Italia. The main desk is combined with a little side table and a big round glass tabletop on the other side. But not only the combination of elements might surprise the user. Also the materials and textures are one of a kind. Firstly, the stainless steel is used for all constructive parts. Black leather is inlayed on the main tabletop and also highlights the front of the set of drawers. Both the drawer underneath the tabletop and the sides of the set of drawers show wonderful burl. This natural material contrasts strongly with the metal appearance. Last but not least the round top in glass adds another material and strengthens the design.
