Tapparelle Desk, in Solid Oak, Inspired by Ancient Roll-Up Shutter Office

$5,540.42per item


Tapparelle is a desk in solid oak with a strong and material grain, where the sinuous and modern forms are the counterpart of a solid structure enhanced by the material and by the very high quality of the workmanship, largely artisanal. The desk is equipped with a compartment closed by a wooden shutter made of oak rods mounted by hand on canvas. An ancient suggestion; one would expect to find inside pen and inkwell, but it is thought today to hide the tools of modernity, telephone, laptop and tablet. It belongs to a timeless collection of wooden containers, the Tapparelle collection, which draws its inspiration from the comfortable and informal furnishings of the houses of famous writers who lived between the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century.

About The Maker

“We love objects which own deep roots, excellent quality, and a strong evocative power”. Colé is a young Italian design brand, with a high-end production 100% made in Italy. Born from the experience of Matteo De Ponti, architect, who grew up in a historic Milanese design family, and the artistic sensibility of Laura Macagno, degree in Economics and passionate of art and design. Our mission is to create design icons, suitable for furnishing the homes of sophisticated and international clients. Our expressive research is inspired by the Scandinavian design, the Bauhaus, the Italian architects of the '50s as well as ethnic handcraft, houses of famous writers of the XX century, suspended between present, past and future; the artists who wrote the code of modernity, as Mondrian, Sonia Delaunay, Moholy Nagy, Brancusi and the graphic genius of Escher. We love trips to far lands, starting from Argentina, Laura's birthplace, where our dream started. From there comes the name Colé, tied to a common memory: an element of color which makes us smile just thinking about it.
