The Ozoo desk by Marc Berthier is a futuristic expression moulded from white-dyed polyester and fiberglass. As an early example of single-moulded fibreglass, the desk is incredibly lightweight yet sturdy. The production process influenced the design greatly, allowing for angular shelf to display open reference books and papers, as well as a stationary tray and pen pot. It is very good condition with minor scratches to the surfaces in places. It is a more pleasing ivory colour with age.
