Abuelo Desk by DELAVEGA DESIGNS

Contemporary
United States

Coquille d’Oeuf is an old-world Vietnamese lacquer technique used to create delicate and unique surfaces. Before there was a white pigment for lacquer, artisans would use bits of duck or chicken egg embedded by hand into the surface. The technique requires an enormous amount of precision and skilled labor, hence why it was usually applied only as small accents for interest.

DELAVEGA DESIGNS took a classic form in their collection and elevated the material by employing their signature Coquille D’oeuf. Each eggshell was hand placed and then captured in a chocolate brown resin and lacquer, creating a luxurious yet durable surface. The body of the desk is solid ebonized American ash and the drawers are appointed with a subtle suede liner. The drawer pulls are fumed oak Sawtooth Pulls from the DELAVEGA hardware collaboration with Holland & Sherry Interiors, which create a contrasting graphic and material balance to the field of smooth white cracked eggshell.
