eBay watch: Office Desk by Joe Colombo

Colombo_desk1

We've never seen this Office Desk by Joe Colombo previously – but bizarrely, we've spotted two variations online in the last day.

The one above is being sold by a US retailer (Sebastian and Barquet) and shows the 60s-designed desk at its best. It seems to be a designer/illustrator's desk, with the option of a flat top or a more angled working space by adjusting the metal bar on the back of the desk surface. And if you need to store a few things away, there are three drawers not a million miles away from the storage on a Boby trolley (or more recent Spinny trolley).

The cream version above is for sale for a whopping $3,500 (around £2,400) and you can enquire about it here. Alternatively, there's a much cheaper option available right now via eBay. It's a green and white variation with all the same features (as far as we can see), but selling out of Paris for a 'Buy It Now' of £900. If it's in decent condition, that could be a shrewd investment. See over for another image of the desk from the back.
