calamo desk

Design Gabriele Rosa, 2013
Varnished steel, cowhide
Made in Italy by Zanotta

The Calamo desk, as well as being a useful place to write and work, continued to be an object of fascination. In this project Gabriele Rosa tried to transform the object with reference to the modern-day concept of home-office, making it lighter, more agile and versatile: an essential element of furniture, both in function and appearance, something that could fit anywhere in the home.

Calamo features a varnished steel frame and top in black, chrome or graphite. The top and storage pocket is in cowhide pigmento 90. The pocket, realized entirely in cowhide, could be used to hold a modern tablet, keys and coins, or even a fountain pen and a diary, for more nostalgic users.

51.2" w | 17.7" d | 29.9" h

Outstanding multi-use slim profile desk
Casey, more than a month ago.
I use this as a combination desk/sofa table. With it located behind my sofa, which is in the middle of the room, I can sit at the desk and look out over the sofa and see what's on television while I use my laptop. When I wheel the office chair away from the desk, it remains a beautiful sofa table. The build quality of this piece is amazing. It's incredibly sturdy with a minimalist steel structure. The quality of the thick leather on the top surface feels like it will last a lifetime and looks great. The storage space accessed from the top of the desk is very thoughtfully done and very handy to keep my laptop and small electronics to hand in a compartment made of the same thick leather. The storage space includes a small pass-through for electronics cables. This desk would also work well against a wall or window where space is tight. This is one of the best pieces of furniture I've ever owned, versatile and beautiful, and I adore it.
