salamander writing desk

The ‘Salamander’ is designed, primarily, as a work-desk for those working from home on a laptop computer. In order to avoid the need to be placed against a wall, limiting its function, the curved back provides the sense of enclosure often found and desired in a work environment while allowing the user to easily observe the surrounding space; keeping an eye on the children, for instance.

Made entirely from the same board of English Ash, the softer hand-turned legs, rails and braces (a hint of traditional ‘Windsor’ chair construction) are set against the hard lines of the angular under frame. The ‘super-elliptical’ solid top, with its curved up enclosure, is coopered rather than laminated in order to maintain the solid ash end-grain appearance at the edges. The large chamfer on the underside was continued entirely by hand up behind the curved enclosure, making this desk a truly unique piece.

material: Ash
