‘‘SPLIT is a modern interpretation of the classic secretaire, returning a long-disappeared tranquil writing corner to the private dwelling [...]. The significant folding top initiates a fascinating interplay: with one gesture the piece is transformed from an orderly, decorative table into a sheltered, comfortable place to sit and write’’.
The finely-drawn secretaire unites traditions of craftsmanship with modern design techniques and comprises many precisely-worked details, for example the sliding storage chests, niches for paper and office equipment, sliding covers for cable tidies, a dock beneath the top for a multiway plug and a pivoting desk light.
Desktop with honeycombed structure, two storage chests, two sliding covers in natural walnut veneer. Folding top, pivoting desk light and base finished in black lacquer. Multiway plug beneath top.
Dimensions: H 76, 137.5 x 78. Top with storage chests 131 x 72.5.
