Writing Desk

Richard Sapper, 1985 - 1989

Combing the literary and the technical, the Secrétaire bureau houses objects, documents, artefacts, mementos and devices. Anything that is precious, delicate, personal, confidential and private. Part writing desk, part vault, it paved the way for continuity between the home and the office and between the public and the private. It is a clean-cut and rigorous piece that changes according to its function, how it is used (either sitting or standing) and the technology used with it.
