The foundation of the series is a beautifully simplistic console table/desk with slim and straight steel legs, stripped from any details or ornaments, leaving two small drawers on the left for small keepings. If you wish for more storage the drop lid desk can be added, available in the same oak veneer and comprising of two separate rooms, the largest one with a door that can be closed and locked or kept open and used as dedicated working space. If more storage and distinctiveness is needed, add the third piece in the series, the two-drawer organizer that resides on the same slender leg construction as the table itself and has the same playful two-finger opening system as the drawers in the desk. The two-drawer organizer can be placed inside the desktop where it fits perfectly or underneath the desk, besides the desk or used as a standalone item next to sofas or beds.
Paul McCobb (1917-1969) was one of the leading contemporary furniture designers on the American design scene in the 1950s and 1960s. Over a timespan of twenty years he designed an impressive range of multi-functional furniture, accessories and textiles, as well as several notable interior design projects. McCobb often offered a playful take on traditional forms with hints of Scandinavian craftsmanship and International style clarity, often made with affordable and robust materials such as iron, solid wood and durable upholstery. Since his early death in 1969 his designs have not been in production, but are now making their way back.
