Design Story

The S 285/1 & S 285/2 desks belongs to the steel tube furniture collection of the German manufacturer Thonet, and represents a slight modification of the Bauhaus classic S 285. Marcel Breuer designed the masterpiece in 1935, yet with its clean lines and balanced proportions the desk is not only a classic of furniture history, but every bit as relevant today as ever. The combination of the elegant, continuous, tubular steel frame and the storage elements made of wood form an exciting contrast. The drawers and the table top are so set into the table frame that they seem to float, which bequeaths the Bauhaus furniture a particular harmony.
