All spheres of design overlap in some fashion, in more ways than simply the significance of aesthetics. Through the Big Boss Desk, furniture and automotive design come together for the light luxury automobile version of an escritoire.

Piergil Fourquie used black metal to act as the body of his piece, glossy and smooth like the side of a shiny car. A graceful curve was applied to the stiff material in order to create a wraparound backing for the piece. This keeps cables and the sitter's legs concealed.

The interior of the deluxe Big Boss Desk is outfitted with a sumptuous top-stitched beige leather cover so that working at this table feels cozy and upscale. Taking inspiration from cantilevered architecture too, the furnishing features a rich oak surface that extrudes from the sturdy shell.
