The Ion Desk

Designed by architect and designer Chi Wing Lo, the Ion desk by Giorgetti draws inspiration from a classic architectural element: the Ionic column. The Ion desk is crafted with Canaletto walnut wood and saddle leather, and has rounded corners that mirror the symmetrical volutes at the top of the column. Its slim frame and elegant proportions make for a beautiful statement piece.
