Originally designed by Marcel Breuer in 1935 and now crafted by Thonet, the S 285 Writing Desk in a black finish would lend a touch of mid-century design to any home office or workspace.
Showcasing a stained black beech surface as well as drawers on either side of the desk in the same black hue, the desk is supported by a striking black tubular steel frame. Consisting of a singular curved line, the frame demonstrates perfectly the innovation of the Bauhaus and its designers.
One of the Bauhaus’ first students, Hungarian-born Marcel Breuer is widely considered one of the most popular and influential architects and furniture designers of the 20th century. Studying alongside and under design icons and artists such as Wassily Kandinsky, Walter Gropius, Paul Klee and Josef Albers, Breuer went on to become a figurehead of the modernist movement.
