Paul Frankl Eight-Drawer Desk

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Rare Paul Frankl designed eight-drawer desk for the Johnson Furniture Co. of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Re-furbished and newly lacquered cork top, in a satin lacquer white finish.
Body of desk also mahogany brown finish. Handles appear to be bakelite, with brass brackets, also newly polished.
Exposed concave cut-out to center back of desk for storing books, much like a sculptural effect of a Sol LeWitt or Donald Judd floating square cut-outs piece of art and we say art, because it is an art form to pull off stunning design, with function as the forefront to any furniture, as the body floating has an ethereal quality. As does the body of the desk prove, in floating the desk on a raised, recessed platform, as if inviting one to admire this stellar performance in design, such is Paul Frankl.
Either way it is a rarity to find such exquisite workmanship, design easthetic, with the varying materials utilized in designing this piece de resistance.
