Privatsekretär / private writing desk


Diploma thesis “Privatsekretär”
The “Privatsekretär” is a new interpretation of the traditional escritoire. Its significant hinged screen allowes this furniture to be used in various different ways – with effortless ease the flat tablelike furniture turns into a snug and private place for writing, even in a freestanding position. The corpus offers sufficient storage space, yet an extra box for several technical equipment as well as lockable secret drawers. A special emphasis is the central located lamp dispensing both a task and a decorative lighting.
