Description/

Unique double desk designed on commission by Melchiorre Bega in 1954, for a private home in Bologna, Italy. The original pictures of the time show an entire studio designed by the Architect, where the desk is the protagonist. The structure of the desk reveals an impressive craftsmanship and an innovative design: the smallest part of the desk can be divided from the main part, creating a modularity within the space. Melchiorre Bega worked throughout five decades and three seasons of Italian architecture, from rationalism to the International style and up to Brutalism. This unique double desk represents one of the most prolific periods for the architect, where he started to experiment with forms and materials, leaving behind the more classical architecture of the Italian bourgeoisie.
