Warren Platner Modernist Executive Desk in Leather, Teak and Steel, 1970s, USA

About

Magnificent midcentury executive desk by Warren Platner for Lehigh-Leopold / Litton (USA) in teak veneers, walnut solids, leather and polished stainless steel. Designed in the late 1960s, this example was made to order in 1983 at a cost of $18,500. Measures: 84" x 40" x 29.5" high One massive lateral file drawer to the left. One long, shallow, accessory drawer on the right. Large walnut cased writing surface is wrapped in one exceptional brown leather hide. Cantilever panels of solid, polished stainless steel support the desktop and drawers. Certainly one of the more important modernist executive desk designs of the 20th century. The designs of Warren Platner are at once opulent and simple of line. The desk is in very good original condition, un-restored and manufactured in 1983. The teak veneers are very nice, stabile, with no chips. The leather writing surface shows light signs of use, as one could expect, with no damage. The walnut desktop surround has a few minor bumps, no losses or distractions. The base has undergone a professional polish and shows very well. Overall vintage condition is quite nice, needs nothing.
