Cosmic desk

Cosmic desk designed by Claudio Silvestrin for Promemoria/Ghianda.

 

The essence and characteristic of this solid wood desk, rigorously absent of right angles, is that there is a hidden draw carved in an enormous sphere of solid pear wood that slots into the surface of the desk, supporting the desk itself.
The other characteristic, of no less importance, is the intentional absence of right angles, allowing the shape and the material (the walnut top and the pear sphere) to be perceived as weightless, as if they were suspended in pure space.

Resting our hands on a wood desk or wood drawer seen as a celestial sphere like the merging of the sky and earth. This makes our thoughts, if we so wish: brighter, lighter, able to take flight and less bound to matter.
