The desk features a "floating" wood pedestal with a rear open shelf for magazines or small books. This design icon for the workspace demonstrates Albini's commitment to both modernism and traditional artisanship.


Drawer mounts only on the right side.

Lovely & Classic Product, Delivered & Assembled with Care

By: WestSideNYC'er, Homeowner (New York City)

The Albini desk hardly needs my review. It is a beautiful (and useful) object, and a pleasure to use. It is, of course, a smaller desk, and the glass top like any glass surface requires regular cleaning. YLiving delivered exactly on time, as promised, and the assemblers took great care, and left not a scrap of debris in their wake.

Franco Albini

Designer: Franco Albini

After graduating in architecture at Milan Politecnico, Franco Albini worked simultaneously in fields of furniture, product design, architecture, urban planning and interior design. His sentiments as a rationalist architect translated into remarkably transparent furniture designs, which display a knowledgeable use of materials while presenting their internal structure and processes of production.
