This desk is a special order produced in 1967 for the interior design of a company. The owner, a close friend of Claude Parent, asked him to rethink the reception areas and his office. Claude Parent created a triangular desk in solid walnut with dissymmetrical steel feet echoing the ‘oblique position’ of the executive. The desk, as perfectly executed as ingenious, has been conceived using both traditional and innovative techniques such as the installation of two coffers on each side of the writing pad, which open up thanks to an ingenious system. The use of dovetails on the flanks is more traditional and is reminiscent of the great techniques of French cabinetmaking. A unique piece, this contemporary shaped desk sums up the concepts of the architect, a great thinker of the 21th century who wanted ‘obliqueness to put man in motion’.
