Imposingly tall and at the same time conveniently narrow, this striking desk is, as it turns out, fabulous at keeping secrets, too. Created as an haute one-person office for those with a writer’s, even lover’s block, it brings self-discipline into the personal meltdown. Its glossy roll-top can be quietly – or passionately – closed down and opened up again with the help of a brass handle or a handsome high reach hook. The desk’s sober appearance is intentionally misleading; beneath its surface lies a secret compartment for stashing notes and papers of greater significance.
