The writing desk is a classic furniture staple that marries beauty with functionality. Through proportion and engineering, BassamFellows has reimagined this time-honored piece, producing a sensuous status symbol for the ultimate sophisticate.

Created in tandem with the BassamFellows Daybed, the Leather Desk is the ultimate expression of functional luxury. Structurally, the desk has a striking, slim silhouette, with each leg and corner joint dowelled eight times to provide strength despite the thin proportion. This creates a sense of levity, when contrasted against the desk’s solid wood construction.

Legs, side members, and structural spans are reduced to their essence and carefully considered in relationship to each other. The absolute purity of form masks the true genius of the desk’s function. Three slim drawers, nearly imperceptible to the eye, are cut away from the structure allowing the user to keep the desktop clear when not in use.

The desk is a joy to experience, with a full leather hide mounted on a composite plate for lightness and veneered on the underside for visual continuity. The leather top provides a practical and luxurious surface for writing and acquires a seductive patina after repeated use. Little wonder it’s become a piece coveted internationally for its formidable beauty.
