A slick Corian reception desk called 'Oil 'by the Saint Petersburg based designer Anna Neklesa . This reminds me of the other day while in an lovely Regency building in London a client was trying to get me to shoe horn everything bar the kitchen sink into their bureau sized reception area and they wanted something similarly avant garde, NO CHANCE I thought , franking machine? printer? 2 security monitors? switch board ? designer hand bags? Privacy? 2 pedestals NO CHANCE. Oil would make a great statement splash though.
