Orcus by Konstantin Grcic for ClassiCon

Konstantin Grcic has designed this lockable Secretary desk. The reserved, almost demure lines convey a contemplative peacefulness. The writing surface of black leather, a sensual pleasure for hand and eye reminds one of earlier epochs, when time passed more slowly.

Togo, A Classic Sofa from the 1970’s

It was the first fully-foam settee, at once simple and refined – perfect for an easy, untramelled way of life.

Its designer, Michel Ducaroy, has brought limitless possibilities to the world of sitting.
Ligne Roset has now developed a Mini Togo & Baby Togo.
