DURIE DESIGN | Product Design – Home & Garden

Project Overview

The ELLE ECRITE DESK is a sleek and elegant executive desk featuring solid American Walnut timber and leather detailing. The desk has been designed to tread lightly on sculptural legs whilst not compromising on functionality. Features include drawers, a hinged top for a power adapter and charger storage. Expandable desk wings to create a larger working surface if required, gives the desk its versatility.




We launched a range of JAMIE DURIE For RIVA 1920 products at Milan Furniture Fair 2013 and we wanted to design new pieces to submit for inclusion into our range for RIVA 1920 2014 collection at Milan. We felt a sleek executive desk featuring solid timber and leather detail would be a great addition to our launch collection with RIVA 1920. The RIVA team loved the design and included the ELLE ECRITE DESK at Milan Furniture Fair as part of the JAMIE DURIE For RIVA 1920 range at Milan Furniture Fair 2014.
