Denizen Secretary DeskPrice: $4,599.00
Design by Jess Sorel & Otto Williams, 2009.
The Denizen collection by Coalesse is an attractive alternative to traditional furnishings for elegant functionality in the home or work space. The Denizen Secretary Desk conveys a warm, honest look and feel with veneer, lightly finished with a low sheen to highlight the wood grain, and a cork panel back splash. A pull-out keyboard tray, two spacious file drawers, and smart cord management provide efficient functionality.
The Denizen Secretary Desk features integrated pulls and a slim, brushed nickel base and legs for a clean, uninterrupted aesthetic. Two file drawers offer letter (front-to-back) and legal (side-to-side) filing. Self-close slides on the drawers and keyboard tray keep the space tidy. Exceptional construction features include birch dovetail box drawer interiors and leveling glides with a ¾" adjustment.

WilliamsSorel is a California based design studio established by Otto Williams and Jess Sorel in 2007. Prior to launching their own firm, Otto and Jess were the creative force behind Coalesse, by Steelcase. Their designs for Coalesse won more than 20 awards, most notably for Bix and Topo, two systems, which defied conventional office furniture categories. During their tenure at Coalesse, Otto and Jess developed a passion and reputation for exploring the boundaries between work and life in an effort to humanize the modern workplace.
The designers have said "we are thinking less about categorizing office furniture and residential furniture, and thinking more about the experiences of working and living in spaces, and the artifacts you need to support both narratives simultaneously. There's really a move to allow furniture to be furniture again, as opposed to equipment. In a sense, the office is being dismantled."
Together they hold numerous design and utility patents and their work has been published in Abitare, Azure, Contract, Fast Company, I.D. Magazine, Interior Design, and Metropolis. Otto holds a BFA in Industrial Design from Rhode Island School of Design. Jess holds a BFA in Industrial Design from The California College of the Arts.View other products by WilliamsSorel
