Lucy Desk by Richard Holbrook

The Lucy desk is part nouveau inspiration, part throwback to days gone by. Designed by Richard Holbrook, the work surface can bear up to 300 pounds, but weighs in at fewer than 40. The hollow body work surface uses less than half the raw materials of a solid wood or particle board top of the same size. She’s constructed of a molded plywood top skin, veneered in natural cherry, and bonded to a rigid frame and bottom skin. $995 ::Design Within Reach ::Richard Holbrook
