Tama Desk by Walter Knoll | THE PLAN
By Redazione The Plan -
Walter Knoll has participated in the project

How do you rethink the desk? How do you shape a haven of inspiration - a place that gives birth to ideas? Is there a design which can help us to think in new categories? In other words, what does a desk have to look like to literally make it its owner’s think tank? It should certainly be organic because nature does not have any right angles either. For years now, designer EOOS has worked with the vital interplay of vertical and horizontal surfaces. Tama Desk is the culmination of this constructive exploration. A balancing act of lightness and strength, simplicity and complexity, dynamism, calm, shape and sensuousness. This furnishing sculpture only became possible with the craftsmanship of the Walter Knoll development team which came up with a range of completely new construction and veneer technologies for Tama Desk. Tama Desk is craftsmanship par excellence. A new vacuum procedure was used to apply the veneer to desk top, sides and curves. The result: unorthodox surfaces and body in a classy veneer. Tama Desk redefines the standard desk as a think desk. No surprise then that the pedestal and drawer exude masterly craftsmanship. You hardly have to touch the pullout for it to open. A light brush of your hand along the body and the corpus slides out, revealing an inner tray lined with soft leather. A private compartment available with lighting if required - a compartment which, every time it is used, is like opening a small treasure chest.
