Rare director's desk, designed in 1970 by Ernest Hofmann Igl, made in Germany by Werndl.
Igl wanted to move away from angular, hard design to soft, rounded shapes. Since his designs could not be realized with the wood processing machines of that time, he decided on plastic, at that time the ultimate material in product design. With designers such as Verner Panton and Joe Colombo, he became a representative of Space Age design, and his works from this period would easily fit into the sets of Star Trek or 2001.
The desk is made of cast polyurethane foam painted in light ivory colour. It has six drawers with full extension. In the foot area there is a caramel-coloured carpet. The worktop can be folded up, with additional storage space underneath.
Apart from some slight paint abrasion, the condition of the furniture is good. The lock for locking the folding worktop is missing.
The dimensions: 180 x 82 cm, total height 81 cm, working height 75 cm
