T

he desk in the center of the room is an iconic piece from the 1950s, and yet it seems like it was designed today with its small colorful compartments and its rigorous and minimalist line. It is perfect for an efficient and functional home office corner which includes an egg-shaped chair on wheels guaranteeing comfort and ergonomics; meanwhile, the suspended bookcase in metal and wood ensures neatness with its imposing lightness. Nearby, there are a few bold and striking accessories like the black sculptural stool or the rice-paper table lamp, once again in 1950s style. The plant provides the final touch to finish off this study which mixes echoes of the past with modern organization to create a perfect and creative work space.
