ProjectsBronze Reception Desk

Capital & City commissioned 'Patalab to design a reception desk for their entrance lobby at 55 Grosvenor Street in London's Mayfair.

A Hybrid of Furniture, Sculpture and Architecture

More than just a utilitarian element, the desk has been designed as a hybrid of furniture, sculpture and architecture. The body of the desk is finished in hand waxed bronze with a desktop surface of black Linoleum. Custom enclosures in black stain Oak have been designed for the additionally required storage provisions.

The desk was hand-made in Brighton by Millimetre, marrying the skill of craftsmen with the support of technologically advanced modern manufacturing techniques.
