"Venetian Office Walnut '700"Venetian desk from the first half of the 18th century, all in walnut root with cherry wood nets and an incredible safe inside with dimensions of 145 x 80 x 75 cm.
The horizontal writing plane; the two lateral drawers that flank the central empty space for the writing chair and the feet; the lower drawer between pencils and other writing objects. The top is walnut veneered like the rest of the current rational office furniture. The tops of the elongated fronts are connected to the sides of the frame by strips. The front part opened in two under a drawer under the counter has, to the right and to the left, separated by thin transverse bars, four overlapping drawers framed by a rectangular wire.
Solemnly adorned with a logic of rigidity, this piece of furniture documents all the inspiration and the executive know-how that characterize the products of 18th century Venetian cabinet-making. Another important feature of this central office is the rigorous simplicity of the system that all parts of the furniture have in common, including the calibrated sequence of drawers that frame the central compartment open at the front, in keeping with the polished finish of the others sides, the elegance of the linear part that forms aerial volumes have quietly diminished the solid supports, robust to keep a safe to say the least in the second drawer below.
