The writing desks are furnishing accessories that have an ancient history: they were used by poets like Dante and Petrarca to write their masterpieces; by the singers of stories in the Middle Ages, as a sort of lecterns, and then by Shakespeare and all the writers of the modern era. The desk is a simple table, mostly in wood, small in size, solid and sturdy, with any drawers and storage compartments. Although pen with feather and inkwell with black ink are no longer so popular and have been replaced by tablets and smartphones, the classic wooden writing desks do not seem to have gone out of fashion. Indeed, the design desks cover a good range of customers interested in the world of the interior, especially the lovers of writing.
The beginning of a new year is the right time to set ourselves the goal of organizing more, in daily life and for future projects. To dedicate free time, to write thoughts, to carry out creative activities and even to catalog some useful documents: it is precisely for these reasons that modern writing desks still have a particular value today, even if we are not all poets and artists. But what is meant by a modern desk? It is a reinterpretation of the classic wooden writing desk: minimalist, clean and essential lines, refinement in the finishing of the wood, iconic details.
