Minimal Desks circa 1950s

leave a comment »

The 1950s were a great period for desk design. Economic expansion and the rise of the tertiary sector perhaps explain that. There is still a lot of sobriety in the designs, as if reminiscent of the deprivations of the war. Only towards the end of the decade do we see more expansive lines.

Virtual Exhibits

We just discovered these great virtual exhibit visits from Jacksons’ Berlin antenna. Wish that they will add to the collection very soon.

If you have the occasion to visit Stockholm or Berlin pay a visit to their gallery. We have yet to visit the Berlin one – it had just opened the last time we had the pleasure to visit them on Sibyllegatan. Great space.
