Pietro Lingeri Desk in Briar Root Veneer

About the Item

Pietro Lingeri, desk, briar root veneer, glass, brass, metal, Italy, 1930s This rationalist desk is designed by the Italian architect Pietro Lingeri. The desk features several compartments and drawers with round brass handles. These conservative elements are opposed with strong and bold modern materials and techniques such as the crossed tubular steel frame on top that is repeated in the legs. On top of the wooden part the steel cross is adjusted and holds the glass tabletop. 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.     Please note that this item is in good, used condition.
