Chrome Strip Steel Desk
Steel furniture, like all steel consumer objects, from highway cruisers to the famous Greyhound-Bus, had their heyday in the period of American Art Deco in the 1950s.
A desk that is simple and elegant.
In spite of the fact that they were originally built for use by doctors and hospitals, the desks from the Müllersche Möbelfabrikation have nothing clinical about them. Their appeal lies in a sober appearance and precisely because the design is so reserved, they are appropriately presentable in work areas with very different styles. At the same time, as practical furniture, they can adapt to your needs: color and décor. The color and size of the writing surface are also variable, without added cost.
The early history of steel furniture construction.
Design is one thing. The point is to enjoy this genuine piece of work furniture in the course of the daily work. The writing surface consists of a large linoleum covered sheet of wood core plywood, so it’s suitable without any additional desk pad for writing with pen and paper. Four drawers which can be centrally locked, which open and close silently on their ball bearing tracks, and a shelf made of sheet steel behind a lockable door provides more storage space for documents and other work material.
Müller in Augsburg.
A whole series of German medical practice furniture manufacturers have been active in the market in the last decades. They are still there but their selection has departed radically from their beginnings in the 1920s to the 1950s. Our desks, display cases and half cabinets come from Müller in Augsburg, who has been specialized since 1996 in the manufacture of steel furniture, explicitly according to "classical models. The craftsmanship involved is considerable: piece by piece the 1-3 mm thick steel sheet is cut, pressed, folded, stamped and welded by hand. Welding joints and uneven surfaces are manually removed. Acrylic paint from the automobile industry is used to produce the high-gloss finish.
