Paradigm Desk



The paradigm desk seamlessly integrates three elemental materials, concrete, steel and wood. The combination of cast concrete with hand-turned walnut legs and thru-tenon joinery married to hand-blackened steel with an oil and wax finish make for a simple yet elegant surface. The piece features two hand-turned drawers. All Stefan Rurak studio pieces are designed and handcrafted in Brooklyn, New York.
