Desks from the early half of the 20th century are often identified as having adopted a modernist approach. Modernist design, by definition, aims to depart significantly from classical and traditional forms of the 19th century and earlier. Many of the modernist desks which appear in the Vinterior collection are a leading example of this and demonstrate a radical departure from tradition.
