The twisting and the resulting tension requires the Torque Desk to be constructed in a malleable and ductile material. Bringing together clever engineering and hand craftsmanship, all the components of the metal body are structural as well as functional.
The flat plane of the desk is folded to support itself at one end and seems to be resting on a stack of drawers at the other. The rotating drawers are cantilevered around the spine, which performs multiple functions of a support, a pivot and a cable management system connects the floor point to the desk surface.
The metal Torque Desk and Chair have been an exclusive for Rossana Orlandi Rossana Orlandi for a year, and have been on display at his gallery in Milan during the Salone del Mobile 2016.
