Ultimate office desk….

Larger than life, it is a returning element in my work and in hindsight probably at the root of this napkin sketch turned to a design reality.

The Jetstream is a classic, aviation inspired desk spaning 2.5 metres. The design was developed with Ahrend who funded the development and the desk was launched at their exhibition during the Salone del Mobile. The Jetstream is constructed out of a steel subframe covered by a thin layer of polyester finished with color and clear coating. With only 10 in existence it is a built to order, collectable design. Since 2011 it is part again of our collection.

The Jetsream desk was awarded a Good Design Award from the Chicago Atheneum in 2009.
