Polished Steel Lectori Salutem Desk By Jeroen Verhoeven
The Lectori Salutem Desk by Jeroen Verhoeven epitomizes luxury and quality craftsmanship. Unabashedly opulent, Lectori Salutem Desk is on display at the Blain|Southern gallery in London. The Lectori Salutem Desk has been inspired from the profiles of two of Jeroen’s studio colleagues – his twin brother Joep Verhoeven and Judith de Graauw. Also seeking inspiration from hand-drawn sketches of 19th-century French cabinetmaker Francois Linke, the desk is makes for an unforgettable artistic statement.
Says the designer: “Lectori Salutem thus tells the story of its own creation, allowing the viewer an insight into the physical construction of the work, as well as providing a highly personal link with its makers. Verhoeven sees this as an essential element of Demakersvan’s output: ‘We are storytellers, from fantasy to factory, from statement to product’.”
