The angulated rippled ash surface of this elegant and graceful writing desk floats above olive ash legs, which themselves appear to float marginally above the floor. Nestled into the far right corner and covered by a wooden-hinged extension of ash sits a
partially concealed red lacquer compartment. It is an unusual shade of red with orange undertones and is inspired by the colour of the Lazcano suite made by Giles Grendey in 1720 for the Duke Infantado. With a modest pressure, a secret button marked only
by a small ‘M' made in marquetry of pre-historic oak allows the entire desk surface to slide silently sideways on leather covered box wood wheels to reveal a luxuriously butter-leather lined hiding place. The silent sliding mechanisms and hidden co
mpartment of the desk are further concealed by a chestnut dust cover.
