Designed by Jean Prouve in collaboration with Jules Leleu for the Sanatorium Martel de Janville, this circa-1936 red enameled-metal piece features an enameled-wood writing surface, side-top organizers and two front side drawers. This desk is very well documented, and was shown in the book Jean Prouve Complete Works Volumn 2: 1934-1944.
