This desk is a unique work of the legendary French decorator and designer Maxime Old (1910 - 1991). Robust design of the desk designed in 1972 for the office of the Union Chamber of carpentry and flooring - Federation Parisian building, is the finest example of Old`s late decorative style of the 1970s. It is the result of his artistic development from the early 1930s art-deco style and 1950s organic approach to this monumental work of the late period.
