Unlike dining tables, dedicated to social moments, at home the desk was generally regarded as a private corner, a place for studying, working, concentrating. In the office it could be one of two extremes - large, unwieldy and highly symbolic, or a sad, anodyne and purely functional piece of furniture.
Now that new working dynamics and the advent of computers and tablets have blurred the confines between the home and the office, and between the various rooms of the home, the modern desk has become a multifunctional and shared designer space, an essential piece of furniture for defining the style of the contemporary office, while at home it is no longer just a table to relegate to the study but often one of the centrepieces of the main room. Poltrona Frau’s designer desks perform the new roles entrusted to them perfectly. Their personality, the pureness of their lines and proportions make them stylistically impeccable objects that adapt harmoniously to all kinds of room, small or large, public or domestic. Whether classic office desks or home desks used in the corner of the living room, they remain spaces for work, research, ideas. Surfaces that patiently accommodate books, papers, objects, wires and all our other everyday items while maintaining their timeless elegance.
