Fabio Lenci’s 22 series was initially designed in 1969 but it was not until 1980 that Bernini put the form into production for only three years 1980-83 as confirmed to us by Concette Parone at Bernini . We have also been in contact with Fabio Lenci and he confirmed that this piece was originally designed as a flexible multi use desk which could be used as both a desk or as a ladies vanity/dressing table. (A copy of this correspondence is available to the buyer).
This multi-purpose desk features eighteen compartments comprised of drawers, containers and shelving while the leather desk top features three flip-top compartments, one concealing a vanity mirror and ; this example retains the full original complement of six movable drawer units.
