Mario Oreglia Mid-Century Wood and Glass Desk (Attr.)1691
Beautiful Italian desk in maple wood attributed to the great designer Mario Oreglia made in the 1950s.
The desk is very unusual in shape, creating a very striking playful effect.
The legs supporting the desk are four in a classic rectangular shape; the legs are joined two by two in a maple wood structure that seems to create a painting easel-like structure. This is what you notice when you look at the legs, which narrow from wide as they get closer together.
Centrally we notice a massive structure, suitable for storing documents and desk utilities. We have two very useful side drawers. The entire central structure is made using the grissin technique.
We go further up to find a very beautiful and perfect sturdy glass top, framed by maple wood.
The desk is perfect as a mid-century piece of furniture, suitable for study areas.
Height: 80 cm (31.49 in.)
Width: 105 cm (41.33 in.)
Depth: 51 cm (20.07 in.)
The desk is in good and original vintage condition, with slight scratches and light wear consistent with time and use. The drawer handles are missing. Being a vintage item, it is possible that it has some scratches or defects.
