Beauty makes life simpler. Computer chips double their processing power every 18 months, says Moore's Law. It's a good thing your home office furniture will maintain its timeless beauty long after your computer has become obsolete.


TANIS by Pierre Paulin

Tanis desk


After his initial success at the Salon des Arts Ménagers de Paris in 1953, Pierre Paulin began collaborating with Thonet-France the following year, principally designing desks and chairs. It was then that he designed the 'CM 141' desk, which is being reproduced by Ligne Roset in 2008 under the name Tanis: its original design has been scrupulously respected, but the 'self-effacing' finishes of the era have been updated and enriched: the writing surface is now in either black Corian or satin-finish black laminate on a black-lacquered steel base, whilst the chest of 2 drawers is finished in natural walnut veneer. Desk consists of a chest of 2 drawers in natural walnut veneered panels of particleboard, with a writing surface in black Corian or satin-finish black laminate to co-ordinate with the black lacquered flat-section tubular steel frame.
