Architect Charlotte Perriand made her name collaborating with Le Corbusier in the late 1920s and is best known for her modern take on rustic farm stools and other furniture designs. Designed in 1972 for her own chalet in France she created the Ventaglio 511, an abstract reduction of an Asian fan made from what appears to be planks of flooring with three unmatched elliptical legs. The asymmetrical shape of Ventaglio provides for dynamic and flexible usage, as a dining table or a sculptural desk.

Kast is made from solid European oak or powder coated aluminium and is available in various colours. The best aspect of this system is the ability to store and yet keep the items discreet. This is furniture as architectural element.
The arrangement of the legs on this table affords a maximum space for legroom. Due to the tangential deviation and by incorporated an enforcing core the elegant construction guarantees extraordinary stability. The shape of the legs together with the rounded corners of the table top result in a fresh and contemporary feel.

A good idea doesn’t take up much space – just a piece of paper or a laptop. Christoph Böninger’s Zelos secretary desk reflects this reduction to the essentials. With its pared-down elegance, it meets all the functional requirements of the laptop generation.
