Albini Pedestal Desk by Knoll
designed by Franco Albini
The Albini Pedestal Desk is, to put it bluntly, a stunning piece of furniture. Perfectly balanced, exquisitely proportioned, this desk is a work of art. The materials are modern, yet not alienating. The composition is bold and risky, but not showy. It defines elegance and style. The Albini Pedestal Desk is the top of the line for pedestal desks, indeed, for any kind of desk.
The Albini Pedestal Desk's design demonstrates a real belief in the power of minimalism and craftsmanship. The hope of the designer, and his faith in his style (what is now called neo-rationalist) have been rewarded by one of the finest pieces of furniture anywhere in the world.
