In an age of portable electronics and urban households in need of versatile furnishings to maximize the use of floor space, secretary desks are making a big comeback. Utility, however, is only one of the features we at Niji concern ourselves with when selecting pieces; aesthetics is also primary, and this Danish secretary desk doesn't disappoint. The profile's stark angles that imply the steep inclines of a glacial mountain, but with a radiating teak that suggests nearness to a home's hearth extolling Nordic design virtues of minimalism and coziness.
Dyrlund has an excellent reputation for build quality, and the craftsmanship is not forgotten in the small details. Bevels and round-overs decor the frame and prevent minimalism from sliding into boring, and the tambour rolltop panel is nearly seamless, appearing as though it was a single continuous sheet. The interior drawers are jointed by small finger joints and fitted with turned pulls. The pulls of the exterior drawers are carved from larger pieces of teak.
The rolltop operates on a unique mechanism connected to the desk drawer; when you pull out the top drawer, it also lifts the rolltop. To continue the matroshka doll of features in this piece, the desktop flips up to reveal a mirror and interior storage space! The desk interior has a series of cubbies, 2 letter drawers and 3 pencil drawers.
Restored to emphasize the natural character of the teak. The mirror on the inside of the flip top has a scratch running along it.
