The NOGA working desk was originally commissioned by an art dealer looking for a slender, refined, and organized workspace. Designed by Marco Sousa Santos of the Portuguese studio Branca-Lisboa, the desk has a gentle, curving shape and separate trays for notes, pens, and documents. The different storage areas are divided among slide-out drawers and a hinged compartment built into the desktop. Each piece is molded from oak or walnut plywood and finished with natural oil. The handsome design was finished last year and just debuted at IMM Cologne 2015. Perfect for the minimalist workspace.
