Contemporary offering: Writing desk by Benjamin Boyce
British designer Benjamin Boyce has launched a contemporary writing desk, characterized by a distinctive curved writing surface. Made of American white oak and finished with clear wax, the desk’s curved back and mint green vinyl writing surface are said to provide a contemporary edge to an otherwise traditional design. The sides are made up of thin slices of oak veneer that were laminated together, while the center is made of a flexible plywood core. Two drawers provide storage. There is a strip of vinyl upholstery on the back panel of the desktop that creates visual continuity.
