As the founder of two start-ups – multi-disciplinary design collective called Non Specific Creativity and product design firm called Interior Newman and Kamali Ltd – Nazanin Kamali has worked on everything from restaurant design to art installations. She is a graduate of The Royal College of Art, where she studied furniture design, and spent some time working in the corporate world, managing store installations and visual branding for Aero retail stores in London. With such an impressive resume, it's not surprising that Kamali's work has been recognized with a Good Design Award, two Design Plus awards and she was shortlisted for an Elle Decoration UK award. The simple forms of mid-century architecture inspired her Celine Desk (2008), which is crafted with turned and tapered solid hardwood legs and a single-drawer desktop. An open cubby on the right is a great place to stash papers and other necessities. Legs ship unattached; no tools necessary to screw them into the desktop. Made in Lithuania.
