The Michigan Avenue

Our flagship executive desk is the Michigan Dusable. Inspired by the detailed bolting of the tussle system unique to Chicago's heritage. The red hue of the Bethlehem steel primer runs through the 5 gauge heavy steel used in the desks construction. The desk top is local hard oak that is hand cut to spec, and finished with a steel grate inlay to reporesent the same patern as the brudge.

The sounds of a Chicago drawbridge are the sounds of the cities soul.

railing Artistry

As the railing on the bridge has intricate artwork, so does our desk. The same artwork flanks the desk sides, blending the hard steel with the softer wood for a superioir desk surface.

HArd Steel

Our desks use hard steel. Not the soft kind. The steel will shimmer with lighting to look just like the actual bridge spanning Michigan Ave.

 This is not a desk. This is a hand crafted piece of history. The Michigan Dusable Desk.
