Carlo Mollino designed the furniture for the Lattes Publishing House in Turin between 1951 and 1954. As in previous projects such as the store designed for Singer in 1950, Mollino took advantage of the new experimentations of the “office landscape” to design a group of furniture pieces with a selection of recurring elements as well as a few variations. For the employees’ general offices, the architect designed simple desks, characterized by tapered legs on one side and a chest of drawers on the opposite side. This desk was acquired by Rossella Colombari directly from the Lattes Publishing House in the early 1980's. It was then acquired from the Gallery by a private collector in Turin. The Gallery reacquired the desk directly from this collector.
