EE02 writing desk, with single pedestal and bent plywood legs, designed by Cees Braakman for Pastoe of Utrecht, Netherlands. This desk was part of the "oak series" which was designed in 1948.
The desk has three drawers and shelf to the left and two bent ply legs to the right. The drawers are lined with curved ply to give a soft interior finish. This desk is in good condition, and has been stripped and refinished with Danish soap to give a light appearance to the wood which emphasises the lines of the design. We have a matching CE06 cupboard available (see image); if you would like more information please send us a note.
Dimensions: W: 125cm x D: 62cm x H: 73cm
