Petit Bureau en Forme Libre by Charlotte Perriand

Petit bureau en forme Libre writing desk by Charlotte Perriand for Cassina Pro

Dezeen Showroom: a writing desk by French architect and designer Charlotte Perriand, in collaboration with Pernette Perriand-Barsac, has been reissued by Cassina.

Petit bureau en forme Libre is part of Cassina's Pro collection, which brings together the brand's most iconic pieces designed for the workplace and hospitality sector.

Originally designed in 1956, the Petit bureau en forme Libre writing desk has an asymmetrical form with smooth, rounded edges created to be used in smaller spaces.

Minor changes were made to the original design to make it suitable for professional use, including the addition of cable passages, non-slip padding, power units and a reinforced metal structure.

The Petit bureau en forme Libre is available in a solid Canaletto walnut, which aims to highlight the natural and curving form of the writing desk, as well as a matt lacquered finishes in multiple colours.

Cable entries were covered in upholstered leather available in both black and tobacco hues, providing a sophisticated look.

Optional, leather, non-slip padding, that mimics the form of the desk, can be placed on the top of the writing desk to protect its surfaces from harsh objects and everyday use.

A metal structure was placed within the legs of the desk to provide extra stability.
