This small white desk was designed by Jules Wabbes in the late 1960s for a student room for the University of Leuven.
In the lesser-known furniture production of his final years, Wabbes seems to renege completely on the 1960s glamour of Mobilier Universel’s golden years.
He experimented with cheap materials such as Benelex and Multiply and accepting commissions for a different target audience, as was the case with the design of the student rooms.
This low desk is made of white formica. The handels are marked WABBES and the other metal parts are well made.
This special and rare desk is in very good vintage condition, with normal signs of age and use. The chromed frame has some oxidation spots.
Jules Wabbes (1919-1974) is one of the leading Belgian furniture designers of the post-war period. He is known above all for his office furniture.
His designs are characterised by a sensual use of high quality materials and a clear, almost architectural tectonics.
