Step into the future with the space age design desk Platone, a masterpiece of 70s avant-garde furniture conceived by Giancarlo Piretti for Anonima Castelli. Designed in the 1970s, this innovative piece is not just a functional desk but a celebrated work of art, proudly part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York.

The Platone desk is a stunning example of Space Age furniture design, featuring a sleek and modern aesthetic that was ahead of its time. Its frame is constructed from polished, tubular chrome steel, providing a sturdy yet visually lightweight structure. The joints are made from precision-cast aluminum alloy, demonstrating Piretti’s commitment to combining strength with elegance.

The desk surface is crafted from rigid beige polyurethane, offering a durable workspace that complements the minimalist frame. This material choice reflects the period’s fascination with new, high-tech materials that could achieve both form and function.

One of Platone’s standout features is its foldability, allowing for convenient storage and versatility in usage—a hallmark of Piretti’s innovative approach to design. Whether as a statement piece in a contemporary home office or a collectible for design aficionados, the Platone desk seamlessly blends practicality with artistic merit.

Despite its age, this vintage piece is in excellent condition. The chrome steel frame remains shiny and clean, showing only minor oxidation visible upon close inspection. The beige surface is intact and well-maintained, with some scratches and small stains mostly confined to the underside, adding to its authentic vintage charm without detracting from its overall aesthetic appeal.

The Platone desk is a piece of design history. Perfect for enthusiasts of Space Age aesthetics and collectors of iconic mid-century modern pieces, this desk will elevate any interior with its timeless style and innovative spirit.

Bring home a piece of MoMA’s collection and experience the timeless elegance and futuristic design of the Platone desk.
