Charles Gwathmey 1938-2009
A Yale University graduate and Fulbright Scholar with a master’s in architecture, Charles Gwathmey was an icon of contemporary design. Since establishing Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects in 1968, he physically changed the American landscape with countless designs over the past three decades. The firm designed the Knoll building on Boston’s historic Newbury Street. The design suited the character of the street in proportion and presence, but offered ingenious modern details making it undeniably Knoll.
After completing the project, Gwathmey and Siegel again collaborated with Knoll to introduce the Gwathmey Siegel Desk and the Derby Desk. Like the showroom, the desks integrate historic proportions and materials with modern details.
A vintage walnut double pedestal executive desk designed by Gwathmey and Siegel for Knoll. This desk features a very nice curve along the tabletop and five drawers that with a lock. This desk uses a Midcentury sensibility with contemporary production techniques. Perfect for any modern office.
