Contemporary Sculptural Desk in Fumed Oak and Brown Oak by Edward Johnson

$23,949.15per item


The contemporary sculptural ‘Radiant’ desk by Edward Johnson forms part of his Murano Collection. The pieces in this collection all utilise Edward Johnson’s unique ‘Murano’ veneers that have been developed and produced in his workshop. The desk is shown in fumed oak and brown oak with an oiled finish. However, the desk can be made in a range of different timbers, for example, ash and olive ash. Please contact us to discuss your options. The top of this stunning desk starts with a small semi-circular fumed oak centre, that flows seamlessly from the ‘core’ radiating outwards and down both sides of the feature aerofoil-shaped legs, reminiscent of fin keels of a boat. The Radiant desk is made to order and is a limited-edition of 12. The Radiant desk was awarded a prestigious Bespoke Guild Mark in 2019 (Guild Mark No. 475). This prestigious accolade is awarded by the furniture industry’s governing body in the UK, The Furniture Maker’s Company. With only a few awarded each year, the award highlights and recognises some of the best pieces of furniture in the country. Edward Johnson’s unique maker’s mark is inlaid into each desk. Dated and hallmarked by The Goldsmiths’ Company assay office (UK); this solid silver maker’s mark adds an elegant finishing touch. Perhaps made more poignant, as it is finely etched with Edward’s fingerprint, a legacy to the craftsman’s touch. Dimensions: 198cm (W) x 75cm (H) x 75cm (D).

Customization Options

All our made to order furniture is designed and handcrafted in Sussex in the UK and therefore variations are available e.g. alternative timber combinations, small design tweaks and small dimension changes. The Radiant desk can be made, for example, in ash and olive ash, alongside many other timber combinations. Please contact us to discuss your options and requirements.
