Ligne Roset asked Despoke to choose a favourite piece from their back catalogue for their Pinterest list. I chose the one and only ‘Rewrite desk’ by Gam Fratesi. To this day, three year’s on from the launch it sits on the top of my wishlist.
Quick recap: The Rewrite desk is a little jewel of modernity and softness. The soundproofed bubble affords protection from both light and external noise and also dampens sounds emanating from within it. The natural, precious materials of which it is composed, walnut and Kvadrat Divina wool, reinforce the overall feeling of softness and security. The functional aspect is covered by a lacquered metal chest, fixed beneath the desk, which conceals transformers and electrical cables, and by a slit cable port in the top of the desk.
Do you agree with my choice?
