"Molimba" Drop Leaf Desk

There are very few straight lines in this piece. From the curvature of the closed desk and the way it opens both upward and downward to the concave interior pigeon holes, the lines on this design were intended to express fluid motion. I wanted a surprise and a brightness upon opening the desk; something that the closed desk would not reveal. The interior needed to be very vibrant and light; my choice - movingui from West Africa.
