Vintage Industrial Mid-Century Modern Aluminum Folding Desk

About

This desk was originally a medical field desk for the US military. Desk is completely constructed from aircraft-grade aluminium and features a very novel folding design that allowed it to be easily transported. We hand-stripped the outside of the desk to showcase the raw aluminium, spot welds and finishing marks then gave the entire exterior a semi-polished patina. Although the desk was designed for purely utilitarian purposes, the form shows a surprising amount Mid-Century Modern influence with its recessed handles and angular legs. The original "medical green" paint was kept on the inside/sides of the drawers and offers a nice contrast with the aluminium when opened. Overall dimensions: 59" L x 22" D x 29.5" T A beautiful, extremely well-built desk with folding action that makes it just that much cooler! FREE HOLIDAY SHIPPING THROUGH THE END OF THE MONTH!
