The Formes Desk by Eric Jourdan Expresses a Passion for Architecture

Architecture and furniture both serve the purpose of providing people comforts and the equipment to carry out a variety of tasks. The two are inextricably linked, but one manifests itself on a larger scale. The Formes desk by Eric Jourdan reduces the former to formally celebrate the art of building.

There is no denying the discernibly vintage appearance of the shallow piece, composed of smoothly sculpted wood, painted planes, a metal accent and one breed of modernism's iconic rounded corners. Its limited color palette and its expression of flat surfaces serve a particularly de Stijl inspired impression with elements of Charles and Ray Eames. The Formes desk by Eric Jourdan is one piece from his latest exhibition which underlines the way that architectural considerations should continue throughout every detail of a house.
