Two Tops SecretaryPrice: $3,552.00
Design by Marcel Wanders, 2004.
Designed in 2004 by Marcel Wanders, the Two Tops Secretary was born of a rather fortunate accident. As Wanders recalls, "I made a mistake, I fixed the table-top under the supporting bars instead of on top, and found a space which was always there but was never seen, I created a lid to cover and to hide and change a few hundred years of classic table making."
The Two Tops Secretary features a fold-away top for hiding away the home office when not using the second, lower desk top. Or the table top creates a useful primary workspace with ample storage underneath. For added functionality, complete this desk with the optional Two Tops Box in white powder-coated steel to tuck away files and paperwork (sold separately, see below for details).
Some assembly required.
