Now there is also a book on the Lectori Salutem Desk, designed by Dutch artist and designer Jeroen Verhoeven in 2010. A cultural, aesthetic, and conceptual statement, this monumental polished-steel desk manifest in contradictions: craft versus machine-age futuristic aesthetics, nostalgic longing for the past versus futuristic spirit, a combination of skilled craftsmanship with complex, advanced industrial process. The Lectori Salutem Desk is so rich and complex that you cannot fully comprehend its message by viewing it from just one angle, because its three-dimensional quality is so fully accomplished. It is rich, seductive, sexy, sensual, and full of fantasy, yet possesses deep and intellectual qualities. This is what I call great design.
