Materials: Powder coated steel, polished bronze
This clean, elegant, white desk designed by Studio Job and Lensvelt, decorated with a single nose, appeals to one’s humor and senses. In the standard serial version, the nose is made of die-casted aluminium, plated with gold-colored chrome. For Chamber, it has been specially cast in bronze and signed “JOB 14 CH.” A prosthesis usually reveals a break so, as you put two fingers up the nose to pull open a drawer, it gives the impression that it is falling apart. The desk, produced in Germany, is actually very robust. You soon learn that it is the designers who are pulling you by the nose by cleverly creating a Trompe L’oeil—an optical illusion—within the structure.
