Stadera

Product description

Writing-desk composed of two trapezoidal-shaped surfaces - a main and a side top - of two different depths, supported by a single steel base painted matt black. The surfaces come in three different wooden versions: Canaletto walnut, natural or stained black ashwood, one version in natural cement and a white Carrara marble version. The surfaces have two different thicknesses and a frame that delimits the external edges in the wood and cement versions. For the marble surfaces, the frame only marks the edges of the main desktop. A stiff leather top cover in different colours is also available, for use on the main surface.

First created for the Marcenaro home in Genoa, this desk has a single leg and works on the balance created by the inequality of the arms, much like the “Stadera”, or pendulum scales, to which it owes its name.
