From the mind of Daniel Libeskind comes the Edge Desk by Turri, an eminently edgy desk concocted of the unlikely bedfellows of black glass and walnut shells.
The metal frame on which the above adornments are hung remains hidden to the naked eye, so Edge appears merely as a juxtaposition of the glass and wood, divvied up in equal proportions between structure and surface.
And there’s lots of surface to be had here. In its intriguing and asynchronous configuration, Edge effectively provides five discrete modules, “resulting in something entirely unexpected, an exploded design that produces alternating and surprising full and empty spaces.”
Beyond being a feast for the senses, Edge is an aesthetic tour de force, engineered to maintain the stark and simple contrast between wood and glass. The drawers, for example, remain flush when opened and disappear completely once closed.
