Article number 7489
Hulmefa desk. Beautiful Dutch design. Tijsseling created this unique desk for Hulmefa in the 50s. This desk is special because of the beautiful organic details such as the table top, the legs and the beautiful handles. Undoubtedly a beautiful simple design that is reminiscent of the organic shapes of Scandinavian design. The top of this Hulmefa desk is boat-shaped and the drawer units appear to float. There is a drawer unit on both sides. There are two drawers on the right side and one large drawer on the left side. Sufficient storage space. At the back of the desk is a bookshelf. So you don’t look under the desk, because this bookshelf works like a ‘shutter’.
