The Big Boss desk designed by Piergil Fourquié draws inspiration from architecture and uses the cantilever principle for its structural support.  The lacquered metal skirt contrasts with the light oak suspended top which juts out over an empty space.  The choice of material is a metaphor for a sports car: the metallic exterior reflects the immediate environment and hides the user’s legs while the refined topstitched leather interior creates a warm protective cocoon.  The elegant lines also hide computer cables, electric wires and a drawer.
