(RED) DeskView text
When it came to designing a completely new object specifically for the auction, Jony and Marc knew they wanted to work in aluminium, a material that has long fascinated them.
Their creation is a monolithic desk with an aerodynamic form machined from solid pieces of aluminium.
The piece was produced by Neal Feay Studio in Santa Barbara. The edge of the desk is extremely thin, almost blade-like and the top surface is covered in a unique cellular pattern that the designers liken to a jigsaw puzzle, with 185 pieces that seem to fit together.
The end result is a sublime combination of scale, detail, and refinement - and an innovative manufacturing process that made it possible.
This piece is unique to, and created for, the (RED) Auction 2013. Edition 01/01.
