1949 PROTRACTOR DESK - WALNUT

Kardiel

PROTRACTOR MID CENTURY MODERN DESK

Originally designed back in 1949 by Italian architect and designer Carlo Mollino, The Protractor Desk takes its rightful place as the modernist icon of writing desks.

MAKING THE PROTRACTOR DESK

A study of the architectural elements comprising the structure of the Protractor Desk brings full appreciation for the modernist masterpiece. A chair would slide beneath two boomerang Solid Walnut support beams. At the point where vertical transforms to horizontal, rounded oblong shapes have been cut out of the beams creating a transparent airy illusion. Resting on raised stainless steel support buttons, a 15mm thick tempered glass plate provides an elegant writing surface for Protractor.

Stainless steel bolt sleeves float the wooden beams off the surface of the slatted cube of 5 drawers. On the opposite side, total transparency is achieved with an open faced single pull out drawer covered by a 15mm glass panel. Two steel rods extend from the boomerang beams, supporting the outer edge of the transparent drawer. A design marvel exceptionally reproduced and coated with a brilliant lustrous finish. 

ABOUT AMERICAN WALNUT

The American Walnut species is widely admired for its exceptional color tone and graining. While there are many stains which attempt to miimick the "walnut color" the actual American Walnut species acheives its brown tone without the use of stains. The natural wood presents lighter and darker tones within the various grains, something not acheivable with a topical stain. American Walnut in its natural state is a premium choice for wood species and used often in modernist upscale furniture pieces. American Walnut is capable of coordinating well with other wood species both light and dark.
