Writing-desk composed of two trapezoidal-shaped surfaces – a main and a side top – of two different depths, supported by a single steel base painted matt black. The surfaces come in Canaletto walnut version. The surfaces have two different thicknesses and a frame that delimits the external edges. A stiff leather top cover in different colours is also available, for use on the main surface.
First created for the Marcenaro home in Genoa, this desk has a single leg and works on the balance created by the inequality of the arms, much like the “Stadera”, or pendulum scales, to which it owes its name.
Active since 1927, Cassina was one of the first Italian companies to focus on furniture research and innovation. It partnered with distinguished architects and designers to find new ways of designing and thus beginning industrial design in Italy as early as the 1950s. Cassina has always had a very precise identity aknowledged allover the world, due to the balance between technology and craftsmanship.
The Cassina collection "I grandi Maestri" began in 1964 with the collaboration of designers such as Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.
