Rosewood veneered Model 77 Desk, designed by Gunni Omann, for Omann Jun Møbelfabrik, in Denmark, 1960s.
This beautiful and substantial piece has been expensively made, with additional features and a real attention to detail. The desk top is rosewood veneer, with a solid rosewood lipping; it sits on two pedestals, each with three drawers. The drawers are beech lined, with birch plywood bottoms; drawer fronts are rosewood veneered, with a solid rosewood, moulded edge that forms a finger hold to open the drawers. The interior drawer sides are grooved to house movable beech dividers, of which there are two. The top drawers on both sides are lockable (with key), and each feature a solid rosewood pen holder attached to the front interior, mounted on a solid beech bevelled support. The back of the desk is finished with two open shelves and a central, lockable (with key), fall front cupboard, covering the desks kneehole. The shelves are both rosewood veneered, with a solid rosewood, bevelled, lipping framing each shelf. The cupboard door is rosewood veneer, with a solid rosewood edge. The whole piece is supported by solid rosewood, square, legs, that feature a chamfered inside edge; this was a popular Georgian design feature, and could be a nod to that era of furniture making.
This is a heavy piece, but able to be deconstructed to aid access for delivery, if required.
This desk has been revived by us on our restoration workshop.
Whilst this piece is in great condition, it is vintage, and as such has patination commensurate with its age.
