Pietro Lingeri Briar Root Veneered Desk, circa 1930
Pietro Lingeri, desk, briar root veneer, glass, brass and metal, Italy, 1930s. This rationalist desk is designed by the Italian architect Pietro Lingeri. As can be seen in this chunky, strong piece, Lingeri wasn't shy to use innovative materials or original combinations such as the burl veneer with the tubular steel and clear glass top. The desk features several compartments and drawers with round classic brass handles. These conservative elements are opposed with strong and bold modern materials and techniques such as the crossed tubular steels frame that is repeated in the legs. The desk is a brilliant example of Rationalist design by means of the strict geometric proportions and use of industrial materials. Pietro Lingeri (1894 - 1968) was an Italian architect and one of the protagonists of Italian rationalism. In this function he was one of the founders of the Como group and writer and editor for Quadrant. Between 1926 and 1940 Italian rationalism thrived most, and Lingeri worked on several projects including the masterplan for the city of Como. The Italian rationalists took the idea for architecture from the 19th century French concept that approached architect as a rational, calculated construction away from decoration and emotion.
