Italian Midcentury Split Reed Bamboo Rattan Writing Desk

About

Exceptional Italian Mid-Century Modern three-piece writing table or desk. Constructed from a wooden frame crafted with split reed bamboo rattan. This desk represents everything wonderful about the use of rattan. Incredible geometric patterns abound reminiscent of Art Deco style pieces with their use of modern lines and shapes. While touching modernism the rattan keeps the piece grounded in natural forms. Labeled made in Rome, Italy. Unknown designer, however elements of this desk are consistent with many designers who successfully created using organic materials such as Gabriella Cresp, Franco Albin, and Paul Frankl. Each side has two storage drawers and there are two drawers in the middle. Excellent joinery and craftsmanship. From an estate in Beverly Hills, CA.
