Thonet v Muji modernist tubular steel desk by Konstantin Grcic

Thonet_desk

Yesterday we featured one half of the new Muji v Thonet range, the bentwood table and chairs. Today we're checking the other half, this time inspired by the company's modernist designs of the 1920s – and including the tubular steel desk by Konstantin Grcic.

Hip German designer Konstantin Grcic has been given the chance to update the company's iconic Bauhaus-like tubular steel designs, adding a slightly contemporary twist, but effectively (and thankfully) leaving the look very much in the 20s. Which means one of the coolest desk designs ever has had a designer overhaul and comes in with a high street price tag.

How much? Well, prices being quoted are around £250 for the desk, with the chair pictured expected to sell for around £215. Again, these are due from August and initially, only from the Muji flagship store on London's Tottenham Court Road.
