Mackintosh Writing Desk


Laurie Mecke and Sandra Quiqley

At the centre of the Arts and Crafts movement in Scotland in the early 1900's, artist and architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh's designs have become known as the Glasgow Style. He and his friends, known as “The Four”, mixed traditional Scottish motifs with modern Japanese forms and the organic Art Nouveau lines.

This wooden Glasgow Style Writing Desk is made with simple straight lines. It also incorporates artistic touches such as an embossed brass panel featuring his wife Margaret's signature Rose design. There are symmetrical open shelves for letters and papers and the lattice framework legs have “glass” inserts as added decorative elements. It all folds up neatly when not in use.

You will also have the opportunity to make a number of accessory pieces to customize your desk.

Standard tools are required in order to assemble. A detailed tool list will be sent to you prior to class.

Price $90    Scale 1 inch (1:12 scale)
