The Desk

The desk is more than just the piece of furniture that many of us spend a great deal of time sitting at. It is also a reflection of our ideas about life and work. Its design through the ages says something about social status, roles, and power, sometimes also about the emancipation of its users.

Featuring exceptional pieces that the design magazine MacGuffin selected from the museum’s collection, the exhibition The Desk shows the evolution of writing furniture: from wandering nomad to prestigious show­piece, from civic icon to CEO cock­pit and from efficient factory to the centre of our domestic life.
