London’s Sebastian+Barquet have mounted an exhibition tracing the development of desks in the 20th century through 8 selected pieces. Represented are Jean Prouve and George Nakashima. What you get is the intermingling of mass production, material innovation and craft that color and complement furniture design during the full period represented. Wallpaper* has a full report, we’ve pulled a few favorites.
On View until March 14, 2009 at 19 Bruton Place, London W1.
