Did you know that kings and generals had their own portable desks hundreds of years before technology gave us laptops and desktop computers? In other words, those people had their own laptops in a manner of speaking: yes, they were much heavier but much more beautiful too. Today, you can have it all: the most technologically advanced devices and the most covetable desks that won’t even remotely look like a working station…The Invisible Collection handpicked a selection of gorgeous desks designed by contemporary star designers, including AD 100 listers, and handmade by the best craftsmen in Europe. We selected a wide range of styles to accommodate most requests, including bespoke designs.Desks are often associated with the notion of literati’s lifestyle; however we can also look at them as the ultimate power signifiers: a bespoke iteration of the K Desk by Thierry Lemaire is now gracing one of the offices of French President Emmanuel Macron, in the Elysée Palace. This bold design in black mat wenge and polished brass drawers screams empowerment!For more sensual and soft lines we turned to some re-issues by the Brazilian masters of mid-century modern in the likes of Jorge Zalszupin and José Zanine Caldas. These timeless furnishings in certified wood can fit any décor and add a subtle, sophisticated touch to the setting. The same can be said about the Apartment Desk 1932 designed by Jean-Michel Frank: its simple lines and exquisite proportions are a testament to Frank’s genius.Our selection includes a wide variety of contemporary desks made of less common materials: the Leonard Desk by Atelier d’Amis is a stunning combination of concrete impasto applied by hand and aluminum pipes; the Illuminated Desk by Jérôme Faillant-Dumas is in polished black stainless steel and lightened opal plexiglas…Discover our curated selection of one-of-a-kind desks available on The Invisible Collection.
