Quaderna Writing Desk

Superstudio for Zanotta

Sale price$6,130.00

The Seventies were years of transition and rethinking, but also of visionary utopia which revolutionized parameters, thinking, styles and perspectives. With it's story, Quaderna represents the utopia of those years. The radical movement attempts to "go beyond the disciplinary aspect of design, that is to say the re-composition of contradictions at formal level, destroying... the usual image of the product".

The Quaderna Writing Desk has a honeycomb core structure coated with white plastic laminate, digitally printed with black squares at 3 cm spacing.
