Oak Desk by Benedikt Rohner for Oswald, Switzerland, 1965



Desk Benedikt Rohner for Oswald, 1965 This desk in natural and lacquered oak is designed by the Swiss designer Benedikt Rohner for Oswald, 1965. The most interesting thing about this desk is perhaps its open construction. Nothing is hidden, all connections and beams can be seen. Due to the natural oak, and the basic black and white top and drawers, this piece has a basic but playful character. Its honest and clear design and perfectionist finish defy time in an unparalleled manner. VAT within the EU: When buying or delivering an item within the EU, VAT usually applies and will be added.
