About

This asymmetric desk was designed by Eugène Printz (1889-1948) for the famous Cité Universitaire Internationale de Paris (a unique place where multiple residences - one per country - for international students were developed in the 1930s).
It is made of varnished mahogany, has two drawers with patinated metal handles and is partly covered with canvas with a shagreen pattern. It is in its original condition and has not been restored. The drawer key is missing.
The gallery has also in stock a matching book shelf which was also designed by Printz for the same residence.
