Danish Teak Model 401 Desk, designed by Eigil Petersen in the 1960s.

This stunning twin pedestal desk was a classic in the 1960s and remains so now. Desk top and body are teak veneer on engineered board, the top is veneered with matched leaves from the same tree. Each pedestal has three drawers, each with a teak veneered front, with a balancing teak veneer. The drawers have oak sides, beech backs, and oak veneered, plywood, bottoms. They are attractively finished with recessed finger grips underneath brushed aluminium finger pulls. The desk’s modesty board forms open shelving at the back, allowing it to be free standing. The whole piece is raised on solid teak, square section legs, finished with brushed aluminium, capped feet.

The 401 desk is often miscredited to Kai Kristiansen, but was in fact designed by Eigil Petersen.

This piece has its original teak veneer finish, which has been stripped and repolished in our workshop (scroll to end of images to see 'before photos').

Whilst this piece is in great condition, it is vintage, and as such has patination commensurate with its age.
