Do you know what is the superiority of this Kardiel 1949 Protractor Desk Mid-Century Modern?
Debbie, Jason, Brando and John are borderline-obsessed by Modernism from all eras. We are inspired by design influences from the 50 s, 60 s, and 70 s and love to mix them with contemporary modern and Scandinavian furniture designs. In addition to our original designs, occasionally, we remanufacture iconic, mid-century modern furniture pieces. We spend our days collaborating with talented furniture designers who bring history, purpose and meaning to our pieces. Working with factories that we have hand-selected for their small-scale production, we then bring their designs from paper to life. Kardiel s creations are comfortable, clever, hand-built and on budget. Our modernist reproductions pair well with our newly designed modern furniture. When replicating original mid-century designs, we study the original materials used and respect these whenever practical.
A study of the architectural elements comprising the structure of the Protractor Desk brings full appreciation for the modernist masterpiece. A chair would slide beneath two boomerang Solid Ash support beams. At the point where vertical transforms to horizontal, rounded oblong shapes have been cut out of the beams creating a transparent airy illusion. Resting on raised stainless steel support buttons, A 15mm thick tempered glass plate provides an elegant writing surface for Protractor. Stainless steel bolt sleeves float the wooden beams off the surface of the slatted cube of 5 drawers. On the opposite side, total transparency is achieved with an open faced single pull out drawer covered by a 15mm glass panel. Two steel rods extend from the boomerang beams, supporting the outer edge of the transparent drawer. A design marvel exceptionally reproduced and coated with a brilliant lustrous finish.
Customer reviewsDamaged and thin veneer and very unsteady desk
Desk arrived damaged with a piece of thin veneer split off of the pedestal. Reported issued to Kardiel and it tried to sell me new pedestal at cost of over 600. It blamed Amazon when product shipped drop shipped with Ceva who Kardiel routinely uses more issues there that I wont' go into . I should have listened to the many unhappy customers that have posted negative reviews about Kardeil on Trust Pilot etc. Needless to say I won't buy Kardiel's products in the future as company does not stand behind them and made poorly.
