The design of the historic office redesigned for the future
Name: ‘LC10 Office Week in Paris’
Designate: Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand, republished by Cassina PRO
Price: £ 4,531.50 + VAT
This design was originally designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand as a table, and was presented by the trio at the Salon d’Automne in 1929. For the offices of the Parisian magazine The week in Paris, which was a collaborative effort of the Union des Artistes Modernes (the French union of modern artists), the steel and glass table has been adapted into a desk; Perriand added a metal filing cabinet on one side and a hollow section on the glass top, to hold pens and utensils. In its contemporary update, the desk’s design stays true to the original, with understated additions like built-in electrification and a USB socket.
Leather-bound desk that combines Italian know-how and Japanese aesthetics
Name: Desk ‘Iren’
Designate: Kensaku Oshiro for Poltrona Frau
Price: £ 4.150 + VAT
Designer Kensaku Oshiro was inspired by the Japanese concept of “iren” (which means “an invisible but deliberate continuity between dots, lines and characters” in Japanese calligraphy), a movement that ensures complete harmony between symbols . The resulting desk is a combination of harmonious lines and practical details. With a simple movement, the dual desk surface can overlap to expand workspace or create storage, and charging and USB are discreetly concealed in a leather-bound metal case. The gently curved work surface is designed for more comfortable positioning of the arms, and the desk is also available in a wall-mounted version with integrated LED lighting.

Not only is the contrast between the cabinet’s metal grill and the soft cascading plants aesthetic, but the greenery should also help reduce stress and stimulate creativity. The range includes panels in five sizes and 14 colors, terracotta or basalt pots and a discreet watering set.
