French designer Piergil Fourquié has created the Big Boss desk. The design of the furniture is based on the cantilever principle used in the architectural constructions. The lacquered metal skirt gives a solid volume which supports the desk and also hides the user’s legs. The light oak suspended top contrasts with the metal support. The interior of the metal skirt is covered with the topstitched leather which creates a warm protective cocoon.

In designer’s words, “The choice of material is a metaphor for a ‘sports coupe’ car: the metallic exterior reflects the immediate environment and hides the user’s legs. The elegance of the lines hides all that is to be hidden: computer cables, electric wires, drawer.”
