ClassiCon Orcus Home Desk
In this day and age when managers have gigantic desks, a secretary desk is a conscious declaration of individuality. Konstantin Grcic employed this aspect masterfully when designing Orcus.
The reserved, almost demure lines convey a contemplative peacefulness.
The writing surface of leather, a sensual pleasure for hand and eye, reminds one of earlier epochs, when time passed more slowly. Nevertheless allowances have been made for electric cables for lamp or a PC.
Secretary desk in MDF and plywood, veneered or high gloss lacquered, drop-flap writing surface, 4 drawers, secret compartment, storage space for cables and power adapters. Lockable. Shelves can in some cases be pulled out or moved.
Frame of chromium-plated steel. Adjustable feet. Please

Konstantin Grcic was born in Munich, Germany in 1965. After training as a cabinet maker at Parnham College in England he studied design at the Royal College of Art in London from 1988-1990. <br /><br /> Konstantin Grcic creates industrial products widely described as pared down, simple, minimalist. <br /> What sets him apart from the minimalism in fashionalble currency today is that he defines function in human terms, combining maximum formal strictness with considerable mental acuity and humor.<br /><br /> Many of his products have received prestigious design awards. In October 2000 Konstantin Grcic is nominated "Guest of Honour" at the Interieur Biennial in Kortrijk/Belgium presenting an extensive show of his work. The MAYDAY-lamp produced by FLOS was selected into the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and won the Compasso D'Oro in 2001.
