LAX | Secretary desk
Wooden secretary desk
1957. The Hotel Nacional de Cuba. An entire room filled with the scent of hand-rolled Havana cigars. Shining amber rum. On hotel letterhead, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe drafts the world-famous blueprint for the headquarters of the Bacardi distillery. Capturing this iconographic moment is the starting point for our LAX collection. A declaration of love to Cuba, to sophisticated hotel amenities of the 50s and the unwavering search for clarity and spatial freedom.
Actually, our writing desk is a question, dressed in the garment of a radical, beautifully reduced piece of furniture: When was the last time that you sat down to write a letter?
