- The brief given to me seemed simple – design a kidney shaped desk that expressed the beauty of wood. The desk needed to have pedestal drawers on both sides and a centre drawer for pens and paper.
Art Deco was a huge influence on these pieces and stems from an adoration from the great masters. Frank Lloyd Wright and Charles Rennie Mackintosh featured strongly through my design education and some of this is expressed in the Teo Desk and credenza. Also influencing is the joy of timber, expressing the grain, texture and colour a natural material.
