Originally designed back in 1949, by Italian architect and designer Carlo Mollino: The Protractor Desk takes its rightful place as the modernist icon of writing desks.Making the Protractor Desk
A study of the architectural elements comprising the structure of the Protractor Desk brings a full appreciation for the modernist masterpiece. A chair would slide beneath two boomerang solid wood support beams. At the point where vertical transforms to horizontal, rounded oblong shapes have been cut out of the beams, creating a transparent airy illusion. Resting on raised stainless steel support buttons, a 15 mm thick tempered glass plate provides an elegant writing surface for Protractor. Stainless steel bolt sleeves float the wooden beams off the surface of the slatted cube of 5 drawers. On the opposite side, total transparency is achieved with an open-faced single pull out drawer covered by a 15 mm glass panel. Two steel rods extend from the boomerang beams, supporting the outer edge of the transparent drawer. A design marvel exceptionally reproduced and coated with a brilliant lustrous finish.
