Pine And Brass Desk in Retro Style

This stylish desk is for those who love retro-chic. Note is a desk of blackened darkness mixed with the brass hardware with a fishbone pattern inside and out. Designer Kristoffer Fagerström created a “black box” that combined the old analogue approach of built-in rulers, hidden magnets and sketchpaper rolls with new functions like USB hubs and power outlets. Gleaming brass fittings referring to the fire used for burning the veneer meet the sooted surface, creating a powerful contrast. The outside is covered with the burned veneer in a fishbone pattern, and when you open the desk, the inside is covered with the finest selection of golden pine in the same pattern. Such a desk is an amazing example of vintage furniture with the most contemporary functions.
