B&B Italia Arne Writing Desk

Produced and manufactured by B&B Italia in 2005 the Arne Writing Desk by by the acclaimed designer Antonio Citterio is a quintessential representation of contemporary design at its best. With fresh appeal, the Arne stands as a testament to its enduring design and unique features.

The Arne Writing Desk, at its core, comprises two distinct elements: a streamlined desktop and an open horizontal shelving unit. What sets it apart is its ingenious flexibility. Supported by sleek chrome-plated steel legs, both components can pivot effortlessly around a central axis. This dynamic design allows for a range of usage scenarios, adapting to your specific needs.

Complementing this striking desk, the storage unit within the ensemble surprises with its thoughtful design. The interior features a lightly textured lacquer finish, creating a subtle contrast against the desk's natural wood. The shelving unit offers storage areas of varying sizes, making it perfect for organizing your essentials with ease.

Place it straight against a wall, or float it in the middle of the room with a dramatic pivot. Its lithe and adaptable design even works as a sofa back table

This timeless piece, conceptualized by Antonio Citterio and brought to life by B&B Italia, offers a rare opportunity to own a coveted icon of modern design, ready to elevate your live/work space and imbue it with an aura of sophistication and versatility.
