Verdict

Maurice Calka is considered one of the icons of furniture design. This desk was a big influence on designs that came afterwards, particularly the organic school of designers. 

The curving sweep of this desk is sensual, clean, and stylish. We'd love to have it. Perfect for the home office, a great addition to a loft or open-plan home, the better-than-a-writing-desk solution for a contemporary decor, we think this piece is an exciting collectible. This is most certainly furniture at its sculptural best, and that's where furniture is headed. Take a retro trip to the 1960s to see where today's designers are attempting to go. Well, as you can see, we've already been there.
