Bold and classic writing desk in teak designed by Børge Mogensen with a slim table top and nine drawers with brass grips in different sizes for an abundance of storage space. Perfectly preserved top with patina and signs of wear on parts of rest of the desk, a few spots were restored on both sides of the boxes. Manufactured by P. Lauritsen & Son. One of the Great Danish Mid-century designers, Borge Mogensen distinguished himself from the striking designs of his peers Hans Wegner, Finn Juhl and Arne Jacobsen through an affinity for functionality and commitment to traditional craftsmanship values. The spare geometries and lushly figured woods equal Mies van der Rohe and disciple Florence Knoll.
