Desk In Teak In The Style Of Angelo Mangiarotti, Italy 1950's

$ 3,200
  • Description
    What immediately stands out about this desk are the black scissor-shaped legs that contrast sharply with the peculiar body part. We often see these heavily stylized legs in Italian design from the 1950s. For example, at the end of that era and the early 1960s, Mangiarotti and Morassutti used a modern interpretation of scissors as legs on a complete line of furniture made by Mascheroni, among others.DesignThe so-called desk part is completely veneered in teak and has acquired a diffuse patina over the years. The sharp corners are virtually seamless and the wood grains flow into each other to form a refined decoration. Two drawers can be closed separately and still have the original locks.The panels on the sides are trapezoidal and strengthen the design language in combination with the legs. Somewhere it seems to float in between because there is an elongated oval-shaped opening on both sides. The legs also protrude just four centimeters above the top, which adds a bit of quirkiness to the design. ConditionThis special desk has been restored in our studio while retaining its vintage character. Small imperfections have remained visible to ensure the appearance."
