Icons at The Conran Shop: Corian & Walnut Desk

A beautiful reference to mid-century Scandinavian style, this sophisticated desk makes up part of the instantly recognisable Naver collection by Søren Nissen & Ebbe Gehl.

Corian Walnut Close

 

Crafted in Denmark from solid American walnut, the natural deep hue of the wood gives the desk a classic feel and a striking structure. The unique grain of the timber creates a beautiful contrast between the distinctive glacier white Corian top, which provides a work surface that is both strong and scratch and stain resistant. With retro-inspired slender legs, the desk has integrated drawers and a pop-up lid with a magnetised memo board, allowing you to utilise your space efficiently and create a streamlined work surface.

Nissen and Gehl's signature collection also features a dining table and a sideboard, which both showcase the crisp white Corian surface and American walnut construction.

The furniture design partnership between Søren Nissen and Ebbe Gehl was formed in 1970. The Danish designers’ work is characterised by a commitment to sustainability; their mid-century aesthetics are adapted for contemporary living, centring on the idea that "nothing is less ecological than a product with a short shelf-life." Graduates of the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts' School of Design, Nissen and Gehl are trained cabinet makers who have received various awards, grants and accolades over the years.
