As part of an 18-piece furniture collection made of solid wood, Thomas Feichtner has created a secretary desk without the heavy and massive quality typical of solid wood furniture and yet retaining its constructive materiality.
“All furniture models from the collection have a chassis of sorts, a light subconstruction connecting legs with other elements such as a tabletop or a leather-upholstered seating surface. Precisely this intelligent method of connection is evident in all of the collection’s models, giving the product line an identity all its own.” says Feichtner.
The design derives its quality of lightness from the interaction of straight elements and joints, as well as from conically shaped table-edges and legs that are tapered toward the floor. “Such designs entail liberation from the static, monolithic quality that often afflicts furniture made of solid wood.”
