Designer: Gabriele Rosa
Calamo is not an old-style desk with drawers overflowing with paper, but an essential element of furniture, both in function and appearance, something that could fit anywhere in the home.
The collection includes a new furnishing accessory designed by young designer Gabriele Rosa: the Calamo desk-console table. With a white, black or graphite steel structure with cowhide pigmentato cover for the surface and storage space under the folding lid.
Undoubtedly the writing desk still maintains a great charm in the collective imagination and the aim of Calamo is to make the proportions and shapes lighter, for the exigencies of a contemporary public, as the designer explains: “this is the reason why I preferred to keep reduced sizes, a light frame with a very thin top, adding a storage space that is the distinctive mark of this project, entirely made of cowhide. This space can be used for tablets, keys and coins or for holding a fountain pen and a diary, for those people who are nostalgic and don’t want to share their thoughts with the web.”
Desk. Varnished steel frame and top in black, white or graphite. Top and storage space in cowhide pigmentato 90. The storage space is accessed by a dropleaf opening.
