Executive Desk for Reynold's Headquarters
aluminum, birch, leather
80 w × 40 d × 30 h in (203 × 102 × 76 cm)
This desk and credenza suite was designed by a team of designers from Alcoa, GF Studios and Reynolds expressly for the Reynolds Metals Headquarters in Richmond, Virginia. The building was designed by Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and is currently listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This exceptional desk features raised stripe fronts of alternating black anodized and natural aluminum, supporting a birch top with recessed leather writing surface. This rare set illustrates two of the few items salvaged from the building when it was renovated in 2001.
