An example of early 20th century modernism - this Italian-made desk has several intriguing elements. The sleek black laminate top is indented with a shallow wooden trough with high sides that can be used for small thin items keeping them in place. The four legs are spaced close together giving a light and minimal look. They support a shelf on the right-hand with secondary trough for more writing instruments or even wires. There are two small drawers concealed on the left side of the desk which open smoothly and hover unobtrusively under the desk top.
