Carlo de Carli Walnut Desk, Italy, 1950s

$ 21,740
  • Description
    Wooden desk with drawer, Italian craftsmanship from the nineteen fifties, designed by Carlo de Carli.

    This solid walnut desk embodies the quintessential Italian Style, featuring a distinctive and recognizable design. Its oblique legs, supporting the work surface, lend the piece a unique dynamism: they seem almost fleeing, diverging from the main structure, adding a sense of movement to the whole.

    The soft shapes that develop along the perimeter edge contribute to creating an appealing volumetric form, recalling the principles of organic design. The aim is to enhance the wooden material in its utmost expression of plasticity.

    Under the guidance of Carlo de Carli, the designer behind this project, wood takes on a new life, showcasing the Milanese architect's mastery in blending form and function. De Carli has always embraced an "integral" approach in his work, applying the same standards of rigor and aesthetics to both objects and architectures.

    This desk, carefully restored using traditional methods, fits seamlessly into contemporary decor, serving as a workspace or a complement to a living area. It can be paired with a variety of seating options, but it finds particular harmony with the lightweight Chiavari chairs, sharing with them an appreciable aesthetic coherence and a love for the warmth of wood.
