Corner Office

This extraordinary desk offers a striking merger of industrial and rustic styling. It has strong, angular legs of criss-crossed, hexagonal steel, and a broad surface of hot-rolled steel strong enough to withstand your heaviest workload. Sandwiched between these no-nonsense, industrial elements are three storage drawers, crafted from humble, reclaimed oak. The wood is left unfinished, to expose the weathered grain and telltale marks of its former life. The two aspects of the desk come together as a single, artistic piece that is both hardworking and approachable. Handmade in Brooklyn, New York.

Due to the nature of the reclaimed material, we are providing the following warning with each desk, as required by law:

WARNING: This product may contain one or more chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer or to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Richard Velloso

Born in the neighborhood of Brooklin (yes, with an i), São Paulo - Brazil, furniture designer Richard Velloso has made Brooklyn, New York his primary place of work and residence. Not just a designer, he also builds his own pieces and is one of the owners of his company, named after his chocolate lab, Olga, together with his two friends Renato Yoshima and Leon Yugrakh. Olga’s work is done using rough reclaimed materials, hard or soft woods - from fallen timbers to 100 year old warehouse beams and even old industrial factory flooring - mixed in with steel, occasionally featuring concrete and glass. However “brute” the materials might be at first, the pieces are infused with modern aesthetics, industrial influences and clean geometrical designs. This is due to Richard’s venerable respect and passion for some of the greats of architecture and design such as Philip Johnson, Oscar Niemeyer, I.M. Pei, Joaquim Tenreiro, Jorge Zalszupin and Louis Kahn. Richard is very hands-on at Olga, to say the least; from the designing process to the selection of materials, the cutting, sanding, welding, assembly and finishing, he gets his hands dirty and sometimes even burnt. Now at their new location in Sunset Park, Richard and the team are busy at work creating new designs and interior spaces for restaurants, hotels, retail spaces, and homes - we love to do it all. collection
