Mayfair office pimps its desk

MOST employees have to make do with a swivelly chair and a corporate mousemat to make them feel at home at work, but one Mayfair office has taken office furniture to the extreme by installing a £40,000 desk. Patalab Architecture, the firm behind the £500,000 refurb of the Capital and City-owned building, called the piece the “Porsche of office furniture”. The 5.5 metre sculpted desk is fabricated in cast aluminium with a sprayed bronze, patinated finish. It’s now in use in the entrance lobby of 55 Grosvenor Street, Mayfair – home to Iona Investments, David Wylde Project Finance, Zamin Advisors, Method Investments & Advisory and others.
