Designer desk on show at Office Expo in Dubai

February 2, 2009




Bafco, the region's premier architectural office interiors and office furniture supplier, will unveil the exclusive Touring executive desk at the Office Expo in Dubai in March this year.

Designed by Italian design guru Roberto Danesi and constructed by Spanish craftsmen at Shetug in Barcelona, the Touring desk takes office furniture to new heights of luxury and sophistication.

The desk is created in piano lacquered tropical wenge timber and is the culmination of two years of design and construction. The surface lacquer is achieved by applying several layers of very compact and extremely hard material and then applying the traditional method of piano lacquer polishing with wool by hand. The work-surface is covered with supple Spanish cowhide to provide a plush finish.

Each Touring table takes seven weeks to complete and are hand numbered editions to preserve its exclusivity.

Even the Inox steelwork on the desk legs is bent, welded and polished several times over two days by Shetug's in house artisans to create a fluid contemporary base.

Senior Interior Designer at Bafco Nasim Eshghi said: 'The Touring desk has been described a 'jewel' within the top management world. It's like the Steinway of office furniture and is the result of a close collaboration between qualified wood and metal specialists who have applied the most advanced techniques using the best materials in order to achieve impeccable finishes with strict focus on smallest details regarding design and functionality.'
