Karakter’s Office desk, designed by Bodil Kjær in 1959, is a Danish design classic characterised by a streamlined, minimalist structure: a simple table top, housing four concealed drawers, rests upon a distinctive metal frame. Dubbed the most beautiful desk in the world, the Office desk is sometimes also called “the James bond desk”, as it can be seen on several occasions in as many as three James Bond films.
