Secretello Reinvents the Secretary Writing Desk

The secretary desk, or secrétaire, has been around for ages which is no surprise as they’re fairly compact and become a multipurpose piece of furniture in any room. Michele De Lucchi has chosen to modernize the idea in this project for Molteni&C. Produced by UniFor, Secretello is a modern workstation enclosed within glass walls creating an almost curio display cabinet.

A solid oak frame makes up the Secretello, with the addition of safety glass, results in an elegant interpretation for anyone looking to add an additional workspace within their home.
