Original 1950ies hairpin desk, Dutch design Tijsseling / Pastoe attributed. The forward-thinking of Dutch designers such as Cees Braakman paved the way of success for a number of Dutch furniture companies. Clearly inspired by designs of Eames, Knoll and Danish furniture makers, Pastoe, Fristho, Tijsseling and many others introduced the bent plywood techniques and the use of prefab board into their first line of modern furniture.

The golden brown teak veneer, the rectangular shapes and the open structure gives this desk all the right mid-century hallmarks. The characteristic hairpin legs give a floating appearance to the layer and top and drawer box.
Very minimal designed, but still quite a large top to work at, and the 2 drawers and layer offers extra storage space.
Very good condition, all parts have been checked, all is looking great with normal usermarks ( minor spots on the chrome details ), there are no watermarks, all is solid, drawers working fine, Great opportunity!
