The desk Tong offers a highly functional worksurface. The system of steel cables keeps the work-plane in a rigid manner, and every joint of the structure has been designed to increase the overall robustness of the piece. The empty space between the work plane and the structure of the desk was a functional choice before than a style choise, as it provides a convenient passage for electrical cables, lighting systems and other types of connections. In the extreme functional synthesis also the shelf is a key-element for the static of the desk. This research of the function translates into a clean and linear design, and the whole piece is made entirely in solid wood.
