Sculptural postmodern desk by Philippe Adamantidis Belgium 1980





Highly extraordinary postmodern desk designed and manufactured by Philippe Adamantidis, Belgium 1980s. This sculptural desk has high quality features and extraordinary woodworking skills. The top is fully hand crafted out of 1 piece of wood; you can imagine how big that tree was. It has an organic shape, almost flower like, paying a tribute to the tree it was made from. The top has nice lines and a beautiful wood tone. Since the artist needed the entire size of the tree, the knots have become a part of the design. With very nice visible grain and at a few points these parts have been highlighted by stones that have been glued to the top. This desk is an amazing example of art meets design. As it is as much a piece of art, as it is a piece of design. The bases are made of tube-shaped bluestone parts which are stacked on top of each other, and the entire desk is in balance solely due to gravity. A very nice detail is 1 leg coming through the desks top, also being specially carved on the top to match the desks organic shape. The desk is signed on the side Tidis, we know it was a Belgian artist, but we cannot find any information about this unfortunately. Probably he or she only made a very small number of pieces, possibly even only this one. The desk is in good original condition with some minor wear from usage which matches its age.
