Compasso d’oro winning Architect-designers Marcello Vecchi and Francesco Trabucco, collaborated on this desk in 1983 for Poggi, Pavia, 1983. The Italian maker Poggi (1924-) was famous for championing the designs of other notable architects, the neo-rationalist Franco Albini (1905-1977). Trabucco is known for designing the Blitz lamp for Stilnovo, 1969 and heading the School of Design at Politecnico di Milano.
The SC73 desk, made of teak veneer on solid wood, has a work surface spread across three steps. Each level creates is an opportunity for the user to display and organise. Compartments, with tactile spherical handles, offer internal storage. The beauty of this desk is that is looks great from every angle, against a wall or floated sculpturally within the body of a room.
The piece has been sensitively restored and is now in excellent condition.
