Back and Forth to The Future and Past
A contemporary desk called Igl Jet, created by a small manufacturing company based in Munich, Germany.
In 1970 Ernest Igl designed a desk that has become a collector’s piece among connoisseurs and acquired a cult following at international auctions. This groundbreaking, legendary desk is now being produced again as a limited edition. In the early ‘70s the igl jet’s revolutionary formal concept and exclusively synthetic composition made it an icon of contemporary office furniture. Now, using the latest technology to ensure the highest quality of reproduction, the Igl Jet is once again available as a limited edition.
Ernest Igl understood with his design concepts that conventional materials such as wood, glass or steel were not compatible. His “structured softness” could only be manufactured using synthetic materials. Under license of Sensufaktur Tobias Brandstetter this classic desk is now being manufactured again. Every desk in this limited edition is numbered. The desk is made of a special high-grade polyurethane mix that is 100% recyclable. The desk was recently featured in Man in Black 3. <via>
