ClassiCon Ajax Folding Writing Desk

  • Crafted meticulously by the renowned designers, Christian Deuber and Jörg Boner, this desk embodies the essence of modern design and utility. Built in 1999, it's a testament to timeless design, even bagging the second prize at Design for Europe, Kortrijk 1998, and featuring in the prestigious Workspheres exhibition at MOMA New York.

    The Ajax desk is more than just a piece of furniture—it's a carefully thought out workstation. The multiplex birch-faced veneer top provides an expansive, clutter-free writing surface. This "tabula rasa" promotes the free flow of thoughts and ideas, making it an ideal partner for contemplation and concentration.

    Beneath the raised storage, hidden from view, is an integrated energy-saving lamp. Emitting a 30-watt glare-free light, it ensures you have the perfect lighting conditions to focus on your work.

    But the real charm of the Ajax desk lies in its foldability. When not in use, it can be easily folded and stored flat, saving valuable space making it an ideal choice for environments with changing requirements.

    The Ajax Folding Writing Desk is a tribute to the classic secretary theme, providing a compact workstation that's as aesthetically pleasing as it is practical. It beautifully combines the table and lamp elements into one product—making it a standout addition to any home or office.

Real Design...Unreal Prices

Shopping with Modern Resale, helps you can get original and authentic design at a great price.

Modern Resale only sells authentic design from the world's best designers and brands. When you buy authored work created by leading designers, you know that you are getting an artistic original that will always have value. While the price of reproductions and items from home decor chains is appealing, they are not focused on originality, innovation, or lasting quality.

Sustainable Luxury

When you buy or sell with Modern Resale you are extending the lifecycle of each piece and reducing the carbon footprint.

The most sustainable products are those that are kept in use. While well crafted design is long lasting and physically durable, Modern Resale's curated collection is also emotionally durable. "Emotionally durable design" describes products that you connect with and that you will keep or pass along. It's the exact opposite of fast consumption which isn't good for our planet.
