Nazanin Kamali's Celine desk for Case Furniture is a prototype for mid-century modern.
This is only surprising because it's a creature of the here-and-now, yet it might easily be mistaken for an heirloom piece tucked into a corner of Case Study House, or a component of a Scandinavian period reconstruction, circa 1965.
Indeed, the Eames, Jens Risom, and Hans Wegner are just a few of the names it brings to mind with its clean lines and exacting economy. Nor should we discount its indebtedness to Old World artisans: as designer Kamali says, "my designs reflect the attention to precision detail and intricate repetitive forms found in Japanese arts."
The desk is ideal for small spaces and spare set-ups. The uncluttered look encourages a tidy work station, with but a bit of slim, integrated storage and a single, simple drawer.
Celine comes in oak, walnut, and black stain, as well as any number of creative combinations of these.
