Beautiful T95 'Direzionale' Desk with Swivel Drawer Units, Osvaldo Borsani, 1956

About

Stunning 'T95' desk from the 'Direzionale' series designed by Osvaldo Borsani in 1956 for Tecno, Milan, Italy. This beautiful and flexible form desk is finished in italian walnut and mahogany with black enameled aluminum legs and table top supports. This desk features a three-drawer desk unit and an additional larger combined storage and three drawer desk unit, both of which swivel 360 degrees so the there is a great deal of flexibility in how this desk can be arranged. This particular example with the early black enameled finish to the aluminium structural components, dates from the late 1950s to early 1960s period and comes direct from a private collection in Rome. The desk is signed in several areas with original manufacturer's decals please see images 9 and 10. The first few years of T95 production circa 1956-8 featured a different drawer and handle detail and also featured a V form leg supporting the outer end of the larger cabinet, this was changed in the late 1950s to the drawer detail as you find on this example along with a revised U form leg supporting the larger cabinet. The black enamel finish is more commonly found on examples from the mid 1950s up to the mid 1960s , from the late 1960s onwards the finish was mainly left as polished aluminum. Dimensions: Please note: The maximum potential length of this desk when both drawer units are swivelled out from under the desk top and in line with the desk top is 102" (259cm) with a depth of 33.5" (85cm). The center to center distance between the two vertical desk swivel points is 43.3" (110cm). Other useful dimensions: Main rectangular desk top ie without both drawer units): Height 30.1" (76.5 cm).
