Wall-mounted Three-drawer Flip Top Desk by Arne Hovmand Olsen
A pristine example of this Danish mid-century classic. The streamlined desk, with its near absence of ornament, seems to float, yet the densely figured grain of the rosewood gives it substance and warmth. A beautifully made thing, its details–from the simple brass hinges to the black laminate surface of the opened desktop–chosen with an exquisite restraint. Retains its original label.
When closed it functions as a shallow desk or console. When opened it measures a surprising 59″ by 23 1/2″.
